Listener Mail: An Appreciation for of Cultural Perspectives
"Well maybe we should I take a look at this e mail we got from Ming Now This was in response to our episode. M I B or in IB. I think this was to be feature this from the vault recently. I think we did. I believe we dared. Yeah Yeah So. This episode Concerned similarities underlying traditional paranormal experiences that people attribute to supernatural forces like the Devil. And then you know mid to late twentieth century experiences of the so-called men in black. Or what could be the you know what could be the common underlying psychology and stuff like that With those two types of experiences so essentially we're talking about the ways that ufo beliefs might spring from the same wells is more traditional religious or supernatural beliefs and toward the end of the episode. I think I wondered out loud if there is any modern folklore in Chinese culture similar to the alien abduction in men in black complex in in American culture. I couldn't find any evidence of that but I asked a listeners if they knew of anything like that and so in response. We got this great message from Ming. Ming says hi again Robert Joe. Hope you're both doing well and staying safe inside during this crazy time. Your playlists have been powering me. Through my work. From home days here in Toronto I wanted to write in after listening to the MIT or in IB EPISODE. Again as your conversation about aliens. Mib and what it'd be like In other cultures reminded me of Fu- fun thoughts. I'm not an ancient alien person but I do like to speculate in the name of science fiction and lower Growing up Chinese. I've also fed off of legends and myths of Asia. There's an idiom in Chinese that literally translates to heavenly clothes have no seams but figuratively describes things that are perfect. Flawless and seamless the story behind the idiom was written during the five dynasties and relates that a poet napping outside one night so heavenly figure descending from the skies. She was beautiful in her clothes were glowing. She introduced herself as the Weaver Girl. From the myth of the cowherd in the weaver girl and he noticed that her clothes had no seems when he asked about it. She simply answered. That clothes in heaven are made perfectly do not require stitching and therefore have no seems going off the aliens idea. It's fun to imagine if she had been alien and was wearing some kind of seamless body. Suit that aliens are often Kitted out with in movies to further link it to aliens in space. The weaver girl is the Chinese name. For the star Vega. The cowherd is in alter Which makes me wonder if she'd meant She was from Vega instead of actually being Vega or the weaver girl. Oh like she was from Vega which is great because Vega is where the alien radio signal comes from in. Carl Sagan's contact oh but Back to Ming's message There's also another piece of lore about Chinese legends that loosely relates to the theory of relativity a day in the heavens a year on earth protagonists of stories who were mortal or earthly to start with often. Find out too late that once they ascend to the heavens a single day up in the sky means a year has passed down on earth so the mortal family they once had were all gone by the time they've managed to finish the task. They needed to do up in the heavens. I've read some discussion in Chinese about this. Some people think that the concept came about because ancient people understood that time passes differently depending on perception but a great many who were into fi or the ancient alien troopers. Believe this is possible. Proof that an ancient people understood the theory of relativity because someone somewhere had experience with space travel. Anyway these stories have some very loose ties to things you spoke about in the episode beings descended from the heavens or space ancient alien sleep related phenomena. So thank you both for reminding me of these interesting if stray thoughts. Thank you also for pulling in threads from other cultures while discussing many of your topics it may seem a small act for you but it really enriches the podcast experience for people of other cultures. Keep doing what you do and much love from Toronto. Ming Awesome. Well that was a wonderful male. Obviously love to hear about a multicultural samples of some of the topics we've discussed and the other one was Was a real treat because I guess for me when I'm hearing this. It reminds me a lot of what. I'm pretty sure we discussed in that particular episode. The idea that like an incubus or sucky boatswain in various European traditions would have like a telltale flaw like goat feed or duck feet or something like that They would allow an individual to realize they were dealing with something that is not quite human and in a way this is a version of that right instead of a fly to perfection and like too much. Perfection is kind of a flaw in any sort of design that is allowing inhuman entity passes human. Yeah and I also really like this idea of ancient approximations of relativity now. Obviously I don't think it's very likely that that ancient Chinese people had experience with aliens or space travel. But I do think that relativity is one of those interesting things where you can intuit kind of General version of the theory just from experience of subjective experience of life right like you don't actually know that you know that the That mass or velocity alters space time you know or makes a you know extends or contracts space time you do at least know that time doesn't always feel like it flows at the same rate. Yeah you would. You would have some idea that that toiling in the soil Seems to take all day whereas just you know a an hour of pleasure seems to pass by in a moment so it seems reasonable that there would be the base acumen experience of of relativity. They'd be able to draw on and then working to some sort of You know a mythological structure but I do also like at this idea how there are myths of people going up into the heavens and then experiencing this time dilation It reminds me of like the scene in In interstellar where they have to go down to the planet that's very close to the black hole in the you know for them. They're down there for like twenty minutes or whatever but they come back to their Their their friend and colleague up in the space station. That's been orbiting it in for him. It's been twenty years.
Pirate Myths and Mysteries
"And for the next week or so. I will be focusing on tyrus during the Golden Age from sixteen fifty to about seventeen thirty and in my ongoing research for these podcasts. I have had a few surprises one. Pirates DID BURIED TREASURE TO PIRATES. Made MAPS FOR THOSE TREASURE. I will be producing evidence of this also. Pirates did make other pirates and English Spanish ship captains walk the plank pick up any book on the Golden Age Pirates. Sixteen fifty to seventeen thirty and it would have you believe that they sailed the Atlantic but in fact when the English began actively pursuing what they call privateers and hanging entire crews many fled attempting to sail around Cape Horn. The southernmost tip of South America but few survived where the Atlantic and Pacific collided strong winds large waves unpredictable current and icebergs challenge every vessel. Pirates formed egalitarian. Orders based on elected officials and mutual trust. They did make some crews of captured vessels walk the plank in eighteen twenty two captain of the British ship. Rudd poll was made to walk the plank when his ship was captured by the pirate ship. Emmanuel before turning himself in Captain Kidd buried his treasure somewhere on long island also around area will discuss Madagascar. He was hanged for piracy in London before it could retrieve it for two hundred years. Fifteen sixty five to eighteen fifteen. The Spanish Treasury Cross Pacific from Alka Poco laden with gold and silver had been caravan across the isthmus there from there. They sailed to new Spain at the time Manila unchallenged until sixteen ninety nine. It was late in that year. That the five masted pirate ship made the run around Cape Hope captain by check Berryman. The Spanish treasure galleon left behind by the rest of the Spanish fleet was just ten days out of port of Al Capone sailing. Lazy five knots for Manila when they were intercepted by another vessel when the peach pulled within five hundred yards of the Galleon and unfurled the Jolly Roger and fired. Twenty two cannon on the heavily Laden. Gallia well that was all it took without hesitation. Captain Fernandez de the Tinian unloaded his sixteen cannons in response and beat a hasty retreat up the coast of North America. No Vashem's speed for the gold. Silver she carried the San. Jose couldn't lose the peach. A Jose carried eighty pounds of gold twenty-six tons of unkown silver and four hundred thousand pesos. For ten days with a damaged rudder Santellien led the peach on a wild chase up. The coast of North America finally anchoring off a rugged coast the captain of peach saw his chance sailed to within a hundred yards the guy and for best effect of short range cannons and let fire twenty two guns in a final show of defiance. The San Jose unleashed her sixteen cannons. And by chance hit the powder storage of the each flowing. This ship to splitters but it was too late for the San Jose sinking by the Stern. Captain gathered the ship's log and perched on the bow made his final entry dated January. Seventeen O one. Half of his crew sixty were lost in the final battle. The remains managed to wrath from the decade paddle to the surging forty degree water toward shore with the sun high overhead. The Sea retreated leaving the San Jose on Solid C.

A Strange Bridge
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I am your host kid chrome today. We're GONNA take a look at a mirror universe and possibly a fourth dimension in this podcast. I'm going to skip over the incredibly complicated nature of the life of a star that is necessary for black hole warm. I'm going to jump to the Weinstein Rosen Bridge. This is literally a bridge that connects with another. It was believed for decades based on conclusions by these two Greg. Mines that any ship. Let's say a rocket ship. Avars would be crushed if it entered this Einstein Rosen bridge however this thinking was disproved by Zealand mathematician. Roy Kerr who found another solution to passing through a black hole slash wormhole I. I need to make it absolutely clear. The black holes wormholes really do physically exist. So we can take that theory off of the proverbial chalkboard and say. Hey it's real second. The idea that our ship would be crushed when entering the block. Whole was based on the theory that it would enter from the side it was Kerr. The mathematician from New Zealand deduced that a ship fired centrally into the black hole would not be crush and could pass through to the other side. Where Mirror Universe or fourth dimension is waiting. What would that look like? Well imagine that are rocket has entered the Einstein Rosen bridge dead center as a rocket approaches a spinning block. Holo it detects a ring shaped spinning star the closer we get to the ring. The more light from the Mirror universe illuminates the effect resembles a hall of Mirrors. But we know this is going to happen so we are not fooled into thinking that the images are real. This big question can a black hole be used to travel throughout the Galaxy S in Star Trek? Here's the RUB. The curvature in space is determined by the amount of matter energy that is what would crush our ship and remember that matter. Energy comes from the close of or explosion of a star that I skipped over. The front of this podcast. When Captain Kirk takes us through hyperspace warp factor five the crystals must produce credible energy that among other keeps the ship from being crushed and at the same time creates a faster than the speed of light that is necessary for the ship to safely pass through a black hole of orders that leave us now. Let's assume that we can safely pass through the Einstein Rosen Bridge. What would this look like? Imagine that you were walking down main street. Usa The strange floating window opens up in front of you floating window for this example. All ignore the fact enough energy to make that window appear will probably shatter the earth. So with that bought out of the way you walk up to the floating window for better luck until your total shop. You see a face now. Let's say that the wind picks up and the baseball CAP. You were wearing blown through the window following his flight. You see blown into the sky of the other universe. It seems amazing that such a simple idea that higher dimensions can unify space with time and then a force can be explained by that warping of space time with black hole slash wormhole and the multiple connection with space. Where still probing the very limousine Weinstein's theory of general relativity? In fact the amount of energy matter necessary to create a wormhole or dimensional gateway is enough to make your brain AAC since we don't have Dr Lithium Crystals to protect us as we pass through a black hole. We have to wait for another theory before we launched that spaceship down the center of a Wormhole but the most speculative consequence of connect universes dimensions is a concept of building a time machine more on that time machine structure and what it would look like in a later
"Welcome to kids Smith and mystery your host kid crumb today. We're GONNA look at several events that were predicted. And of course we'll start with our current pandemic predicted seventeen years ago by science. If you still believe in science and is this a first well of course not you can look back. A hundred years to the nineteen eighteen. Banish flu epidemic tremendous number of similarities. Between on then. And what's going on now but we're going to leave that behind. Don't look at earthquakes. Also predicted are subduction zone. Earthquakes have occurred every three hundred and fifty years said six hundred BC with the most recent taking place January twenty six seventeen o one evidence for the earlier quakes or predictions comes from core samples taken from the ocean floor. The seventeen hundred quake caused several coastal regions are both Washington and Oregon to drop sixty six feet. Massive coastal storms during the nineteen ninety seven and ninety eight storms washed away tons of sand revealing hundreds of stumps the remnants of Sitka spruce forest. It is through a combination of carbon dating and counting of rings. That the date of the last cascade subduction zone or C. S. Z. Quake place the Earth. Surfaces made up of seven major plates in many smaller ones. The smaller place creator quakes for short durations of fourteen to forty five seconds it may reach nine point five on the Richter scale. They often take place at what is called the fault line between plates March Eleventh. Two Thousand Eleven Japanese experience subduction zone quite that lasted more than four minutes at a nine point one. On the Richter scale it was the fourth most powerful earthquake in the world since modern record taking began in nineteen hundred to shake created a soon nami that reached one hundred thirty three feet and move six miles inland. It moved Japan's main island of Honshu. Eight feet and shifted the earth on its axis between four and ten inches. This was an earthquake created by the shifting of the Pacific Plate Vialli to help put earthquakes in perspective the Loma Prieta quake that interrupted the nineteen eighty nine world series in San Francisco. California lasted fifteen seconds. The Great San Francisco earthquake of Nineteen. Six was eight point six and it lasted. Forty five seconds but Japan's greater earthquake of twenty eleven lasted over four minutes at nine point one on the Richter scale based on data from Oregon. Siochana Oceana Graphic Person Patrick Corcoran and US GS is Alaska. Science Center true mysteries of the Pacific northwest will now who are predicted. Minute by minute. Impact of a Cascadia subduction zone earthquake on the Oregon coast get this after three hundred twelve years the CS is he could no longer take the strain. It ruptures a spot fifty five miles west of Cannon Beach Oregon and quickly spreads along the seven hundred miles of length from British Columbia to Mendocino California. The North American plate slips fifty seven feet to the South West sliding over the one to Fuca plate. But remember we're talking about a crushed more than fifty miles deep. The first movement sends a pressure wave that travels through the Earth's crust at thirteen thousand miles an hour it will reach the West Coast in ten seconds. The leading edge will hit cannon beach and seaside thirty seconds later it reaches Portland Oregon in fifty seconds at his Seattle at nine point one. It's what Size Malla. Just call a full rip. Most cities can withstand a six point eight quake last year forty five seconds. But the difference between a forty second and a four-minute quake is like the difference between a head on collision at four miles an hour and forty miles an hour within three minutes. Shaking continues the coast will drop from six to twenty five feet after five minutes. The worst is over for Portland and Seattle will have suffered from ground. Liquefication building collapsed gas fires citywide after six minutes. People seeking high ground to avoid the SU- NAMI will be impeded by debris and driving will be almost impossible at eight minutes to Sonoma will be about twenty five miles offshore. It approaches like an enormous high tide but flash floods speed. The leading edge will only be inches but it will increase to forty feet is predicted that the cascade subduction zone quake would create twice the impact of Japan's great quake of twenty eleven. Keep in mind that by the time you finish listening to this podcast. There will earthquake somewhere in the
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kit Crumb. I'm continuing my investigation into the concepts of time travel yesterday. I mentioned three resources. Final countdown. A movie where you can watch. Martin Sheet explained the grandfather paradox of time to Kirk Douglas. Kind of a fun movie came out in the eighties and Christopher Reeves in his movie somewhere in time takes it to a mental intellectual level kind of away from what physicists would like to think when they think of time travel and of course. There's the book by She. Wells time travel Idea that you could just go to the future. Go to the pass by pulling a switch on a machine. One of the things that happened yesterday was I mentioned the grandfather paradox of time and I gave you a place to watch Martin. She talk about this. I got a lot of emails saying why. Don't you explain it? So here goes this kind of scattered a little bit but give you an idea. Besides a physical problem time travel may also come with some unique situations a classic example. Is the grandfather paradox. Which time travel? It goes back and kills his parents or his grandfather. The major plot line terminator movies interferes in their relationship. Now think back to the future so that he has never born or as life is forever altered. That's back to future if that were to happen. Some physicists say you would not be born in one parallel universe but still born and another others say that the photons it makeup light prefer self consistency and time lies which would interfere with your evil suicidal plan. Some scientists disagree with the options mentioned above. And say time travel is impossible no matter what. Your method. The faster than light. One in particular drew derision from American Museum of Natural History astrophysicist Charles Lou that simply mathematically doesn't work you said also humans may not be able to withstand time travel at all. And that's what we're lucky nap today. Several theories time travel traveling. Nearly the speed of light would be necessary and take some kind of centrifuge. But that would be lethal. So let's go back to the beginning and say what is time while most people think of time as a constant physicist Albert Einstein showed a time is an illusion it is relative it can vary for different observers depending on your speed through space to Einstein. Time is the fourth dimension space is described as a three dimensional. Orito and we know that we have up and down forward and back left and right those who are dimensions but he talks about a fourth dimension which provides traveler with coordinates such as length width and height showing location. And then that fourth dimension provides another coordinate or direction although conventionally it only moves forward. Einstein's theory of special relativity says time slows down or speeds up depending on how fast you move relative to something else approaching the speed of light. A person inside a spaceship would age much slower than his twin at home. Also under Einstein's theory of general relativity gravity can ban time picture a four dimensional fabric. Call Space Time. When anything that has mass sits on that piece of fabric it causes a dimple or bending of space time. Let's stop and talk about this fourth dimension for a moment if you look into a Koi pond and you see the fish and they have is on either side of their head they are two dimensional creature stay left and right and they can move forward and back. There is nothing about them. There is no third dimension so if I grabbed one of the Koi and lifted about of a pond that would introduce the Koi to a third dimension so what Einstein in his speaking of this fourth dimension or call what he calls Space Time. That is something that is above us. It is literally another dimension so there you have the idea of Space Time. What that is that is that fourth dimension that's above us like the third dimension this above a Koi pond for example objects move on a curved path in that curvature of space is what we know as gravity both general and special relativity theories have been proven with GPS Satellite Technology. That has very accurate time. Pieces on board the effects of gravity as well as satellites increase speed above the earth relative to observers on the ground. Make at the UN adjustable clocks gained thirty eight microseconds a day in a sense. This effect called time. Dilation means astronauts are time travelers as they returned to earth very very slightly younger than they're identical twins that remain on the planet. One possibility could be to go faster than light which travels at one hundred and eighty six thousand two hundred and eighty two miles per second. That would be a vacuum Einstein's equations though show that an object at the speed of light would have both infinite mass and a zero of length. Go figure that s beyond me.
Von Erich Wrestling Family Curse
"Welcome to ghostly stare von Erich family curse. Go-slow is a podcast. That comes out every other week each episode we take it goes story or paranormal event. And look into its complete history. Rebecca then gives us evidence proving that the story is real in. My job is debate those pieces of evidence and get you the listener prepared to vote on. If it's real or not if you haven't yet please hit that subscribe button as always we are your host. I'm Pat I'm Rebecca and we have with us a special guest that has been on the been on ghostly more than anybody else can hold on. I'll take that record. Yeah it's Bob from Bob after dark. Oh Hey there everybody. It's Bob from Bob after dark. That's me that is you Mr Bob Anderson. Hello Everybody Hi Pat. Hi Rebecca. Hi So What's been going on with you guys. The question question. Let's do it in a positive way. We just had Chicago's paranormal panel. Also that was a lot of fun. You've been bill and Ted Today. Most excellent each other do. It was Super Fun as Friday night on Youtube Youtube slash. Go See podcast. You guys can go check it out and it was a lot of fun. Ursula told some crazy crazy stories about Hancock building in Chicago stuff that I did not know about And spiders such usually horrify spiders from Mars and good addendum to our poltergeist episode for sure That was stuff that we touched on in that but she definitely had more to say And then Steve Michaels who wrestler so related a little bit too are today Told me some things about. Msi that museum science industry. That I did not know about so people don't know what is like college at first after. Hospital of some sort of the Surrey State University Institute exists. I don't know but Yeah anyways it was. It was a lot of fun. Let a good story. So Yeah. Well we have a lot of episode ahead of us So we're going to save more of this kind of discussion for the end. The right now. We have to get to the listener mail and I know. Rebecca has a very special one disease. Finish up the series of finishing they. Mj series the third word steamed right with our Last ants Stuff going on on. Espn No this one is a little long but I wanted to just finish it out. So just as a reminder. This is a family that has now moved into a second house and the entity has now moved across the street into the House with them again. The little boy like let the thing in so let's continue absolutely in March of two thousand nineteen. We had decided that we would add a puppy into the mix. I don't know if this is what caused to what happened. What happens next to happen but it seems like things started to get worse a few weeks after we had gotten our dog we had seen the entity more often and it wasn't shying away anymore it would start flickering the lights and slamming cabinet doors. There were constant cold spots. My son started to think there was a monster in the bathroom and the kitchen. All places where weird things started escalate in May of two thousand nineteen so not that long ago? We woke up to our dog crying wanting to go side. He's using the bathroom. My husband took her out and she refused to come back in. My husband dragged her back into the house to the smell of sulfur or eggs. He woke me up to verify that I had also smokes something off. We searched the house that it was stronger from the back of the House. Where the kid's bedrooms were. We got the kids and took them outside. We called our landlord and said that and they said there could be a gas leak. They sent someone over to check and it was a gas leak after that gas leak. We decided to investigate other places to live. I liked that this family follows the rules. Get Out Right. At least they're trying. We packed her belongings. And they're the entity was again looking at are things at this point. I was done. I I yelled. Is this what you wanted? We're leaving and do not follow us. Something seem seeming to hear me Russia. The dining room to the back door. Slamming the door. She's a she's a tough lady. Talent is entity. Yeah all right. We had moved into a rent to own on Thursday June. We had originally seen this house's something we could make our own a way to get away from all the things that we've been dealing with it. The previous you places had everything moved in by Saturday. Still were working on a packing that first Sunday of living in this new residence. I was moving things around. And the kids were in their My husband was outside with our dog when I saw the dark. Figure a get so like moved to tone totally new house there. It is again the Third House Third House. It was standing just by my side of the bed. Just watching me. After about five minutes of just standing there started to move towards me. I grabbed the kids outside on the first Monday of living in this new residents. I was laying down on the couch in the living room with my daughter underneath the AC unit. Because it was in June Kansas so a little warm in the house. My son was playing on the floor in the same room as us by husband was setting up the house. Our dog started whining to go outside. Seeing I was with the kids my husband. Said said he would take the dog outside to do your business when she was done. She refused to go back inside the house again. She kept arguing toward the House and tried to drag my husband away from the door trying to drag him down the driveway. He ended up putting her on a chain right outside the front door and came back inside. He opened the door. The smell of sulfur hit. He asked me if I had smelled it since we were sitting low to the ground in constant movement of air from the AC unit. We hadn't initially smelled it this time. The smell was overwhelming and not at all like just a few weeks previously that we so we determined to the gas company to be called instead of waiting around on the landlord to get back to August and the gas company told us we needed to get out of the House immediately and get as far away as possible. We all sat outside in the car Sitting in the street is far away from the house but still close enough for the gas company to ask questions if they needed it after. The gas company came in surveyed the leak. They determined that if we were to go to sleep in that house. We may not have woken up for sure. If we laid our daughter down she would not have because the gas leak was coming from her room.

"Welcome to kiss myths and mystery. Signed your host kid chrome today. I'm continuing my investigation. Into the question are flying saucers man-made or other worldly in this investigation I come again and again up to the front door area fifty one. I use a lot of the freedom of Information. Act For some of my research as well as a few contacts have and freedom of Information Act has gotten me nothing on area fifty one. I will share an excellent resource with you at the end of this podcast but right now. I'm working with the idea that has been out for decades. So where are all these flying saucers? Where are all these aliens looking at area fifty one or many suspect at UF Os and even aliens our house? It's important to keep in mind but the various so-called areas that would be eleven fourteen and twenty five and fifty one to mention just a few of the secured areas of the base arose during the Cold War. This was a time when we were flying spy planes over Russia and China and they were spying on us in the way of ufo and aliens are at area fifty one we may never know for sure but from the nineteen sixty six school yard sighting of a Ufo and Australia witness by hundreds of school children. Three hundred actually and their teachers. There is a lot of evidence. Flying Saucers really exist. And as I mentioned some of the science based answers to our they're flying saucers are there are really silly. Also might research. I determined that a cover up of certain knowledge by the government or scientific community or science based industry is expressed as a denial factor the best way to illustrate this is simply to observe politicians. If a political body or individual denies that long enough the public will eventually believe that it never happened kind of Gullible. American public there. There are few true attempted cover-ups you could look at the flying saucer crash in Roswell as one and the Kennedy assassination as number another. Unfortunately most of these cover-ups are successful and I can't pin them down as cover-ups so we had the denial factor regarding all things alien fly saucer when a flying saucer alien is encountered by handful of individuals. Say Five to ten people. The is dismissed as a sign of a weather balloon and more recently as a test aircraft. That same explanation is twisted a bit but when used with strange lights the night but it's the same excuse in the event of twenty or thirty or in one case Australia. Hundreds of witnesses seen the same exact thing. Then the science says oh it's mass hysteria. Individual sightings are too numerous to explain but a brief lock mass hysteria over the centuries is another matter in sociology and psychology. Mass hysteria is a phenomenon. That transmits collective allusions of threats whether real true Population Society back in Sixteen Ninety two. We have the most famous the Salem witch trials which were the result of fear community hostility imagination and religion all resulting in mass hysteria. I personally interviewed a navigator of a Flying Fortress Play Chicken with follow by FOO fighters during World War. Two when they were flying over the Pacific. This was actually one thousand nine hundred forty four. When it occurred entire crew witnessed all the events fatigue mass hysteria I S. He didn't think so. Finally we have the conundrum of thinking if the existence of something be disproved. Does that mean it exists or put another way? Should we believe everything we think? On Monday I will be looking inside area. Fifty one with every resource I have given you an idea of its structure of tunnels that do exist and I promised to share a resource with you is called Area Fifty One. This is a book. An uncensored history of America's top secret military base is by investigative reporter Anne Jacobson and she talked to over twenty five individuals who are retired ranging from age five to ninety four that had worked within by area fifty one in the book. There are incredible photographs at a never before published. She was granted a lot of information a lot of access. But keep in mind that whatever. She was granted well that was meant to be seen. It was okay. They wouldn't be showing her anything. That was super top secret.
"Sixteen and me and my friends. I'll call eight and jake wanted to rent a hotel for the night. Since it was spring break we got to the hotel and checked Dan. It had a really funky smell but we still stayed there. Once we got to. Our Room is about three thirty PM so he decided to go swimming. The pool was downstairs departed from the hotel. Once we got to the entrance there was a man at least six foot. Three all black with a hood covering his face facing us. I panicked a little but not out loud. We got into the pool and swam for a few hours until he saw that man again. All black sitting on a chair by the poem. I cleared my throat and Can I help you sir? I asked no response. I still was a little paranoid. I put my face in the water and at the bottom of the pool was another figure that was all black. I scream like a little girl around for the door and looked back in some nothing. Not The guy in the chair or the guy under the pool. My friends said I was just seeing things but I saw when I saw is clear water. Fill swimming anymore so I decided to get dinner at a nearby restaurant gotta table for me and my friends to sit at and there. I saw once again the men in all black on the other side of the dining room and was staring. I've had enough. I went over there and I lost track of him and he took off after we ate. I decided this trip has gone too far and we should leave tomorrow morning but my friends didn't like that idea once. It was ten thirty. My friends and I dozed off in the hotel room. I woke up some noises and I saw a shadow figure at the end of my bed. I call myself and told myself that it was my head that I put there before I went to bed. I went to bed and got woken up again thirty minutes later. Two more noises getting thirsty so I reached my bed and try to grab my water bottle but I grabbed something and I was totally shocked by what I grabbed my hat. I was not ever more scared in my life. I could scream at the top of my lungs when I heard a voice next to my ear. Say you're a bitch a jumped out of bed and realized it was two men in black there. I tried to fight them but it was no use. One St grabbed me and dragged me out of the room. I tried to scream but the guy was covering my mouth. I passed out and was woken up in a stretcher. It turned out. Those guys knifed me while I passed out and someone caught them
The Chinese University of Hong Kong
"The Chinese University of Hong Kong or see you. H K was founded in one thousand nine hundred sixty three with a charter from the local Legislative Council created as a research university with a mixture of both Chinese and western educational styles. See You H K has the largest campus in Hong Kong after assimilating nearby schools. It boasts nine different colleges as part of its unique school system the campus located near the Hong Kong Mass Transit Rail or MTR with university station being essential. Stop for students.

Don't believe everything you see
"Kit K. Crumb at she bill dot com. And I will send you the book. You've vindicated as your choice. But now today don't believe everything you see what each individual may have a different perception of reality. Reality is a fixed factor. Perception of reality is reality. Make sense of that well. For example if two people or skiing mountain witness an avalanche description of the sound and the amount of snow involve will vary but both skiers will agree that it was some avalanche as something pretty big. What about those Pesky little things? We encounter every day for law enforcement. Personal perception is a huge concern. This is why with auto accidents and certain crimes. A police officer will ask the question several times then turn to another witness and asked the same question. They're trying to find out what really happened. Not what was perceived to have happened? The implication is that what you see or don't see may not be reality. I ride a motorcycle and wrote a book Navigating Mountain curves on a motorcycle. Now a bestseller audio fashion. You can get that at my website. It my research for this book. I interviewed a number of police officers. Who responded to the scene of a motorcycle accident? They told me that almost all the drivers of the car involved said they didn't even see the motorcycle. How could that be what I discovered amazed me? It's something called in attentional blindness. This is when a driver encounters. Let's say a four-way stop every day on the way to work it's early. He occasionally encounters another car going in the opposite direction but never one on the right or left so when he glances to the right. He doesn't see the motorcycle but that begs the question. Why not he glances to his right and the motorcycle is they're sitting at the stop sign waiting his turn. Why doesn't he see the motorcycle? The answer is how the brain perceives. What we see truth. What you see is not the real world what it is your brains desk. Guess Reality based on input from your eyeball. Cicadas are quick eye movements. Your brain has to ignore cottage information. Because the I flicked too fast. If the brain kept all data provided by the fast moving your vision would be blurred. So when we scan and intersection our brain prefers to see a series of pictures called. Dixie and in the movement between fixation between the CICADAS. Our brain sees nothing. Of course life is not afflict book so the brain uses the or pictures to guess what happens in between and gathered pre existing data to fill up the space and provide a smooth on blurred image. The answer for accurately seen when you're shirring intersection would be to scan slowly this way. The brain doesn't have to smooth things out doesn't have to create a picture like image that it puts together with the familiar and in the process. Leaving out all the sports cars or motorcycles or any vehicle that hasn't been encountered at that intersection before just as a brain blocks out the blurry it also blocks out what it considers irrelevant with. Something called selective attention in general. We are more likely to notice things that are sexy dangerous. This is why honking the horn. Get your attention for years has implied danger or at least look over here. See me also. The color red has been shown to be an attention getter then there is peripheral blindness. Just twenty degrees off the line of sight and humans lose ninety percent of their vision although clear images are lost. The brain will pick up on the movement in. It's peripheral an example peripheral blindness or the windshield being in your car. Fortunately they are usually located at ten and two so as not to obscure anything when driving straight ahead but anything communist the car from that angle of ten or two will be invisible. Finally there is contrast blindness. It's been determined to contrast is the greatest single factor the acquisition of target. So it would seem that to truly see reality. One would have to slow the scanning process in this way the brain only reports. What is their luck out over the forest meadow in a slow
The Skeptics Guide
"Today is Wednesday April Fifteenth Twenty Twenty. And this is your host even Avella joining me this week. Or Bob Develop. Everybody Cares Santamaria. Howdy Jay. Novella Guys Evan Bernstein. Well good evening. Everyone not tax day. Every that's not tax day. It goes to tax day. Okay so this has never happened before in the history of our country tax day for as long I think since nineteen well since they adopted April fifteenth as the Tax Day. There's never it's never been postponed until this year. Yeah it's never been moved. It's always been April fifteenth. And we're talking wars. You know we're talking anything everything you can think of. The last seventy years that is that has happened but this virus did it well. I know it's amazing is necessary. Is that definitely definitely necessarily people. Need all the help they can get right now. Financially and otherwise. Yeah that's true because it's not just about filing paperwork on tax day it's about paying what you owe right. I think I probably. Oh quite a bit. But if you're getting a refund you could file whenever you want absolutely yeah. And we've encouraged our clients. They're expecting refunds. Don't wait do not wait. No no point in waiting so those are the ones I've heard from and the people who oh I have not heard from January right. Guess you guys. I got the funniest well. I shouldn't say funny cause was actually very depressing. Email today from a local massage studio here in L. A. Says Cove in nineteen update. Now is the time. We're getting so many. E mails and some of them. Amazing some of the super arbitrary from companies being like in these times of crisis. We're here to tell you that we exist and you're like what I don't need this update but this one is so strange. It says to our massage clients effective today all massage treatments will be cancelled through April fifth. This comes in recommendation from the city. The state and the California massage therapy council safety in wellness of our clientele staff and massage therapist. Our number one priority will be here when this passes in the meantime please be gentle with yourself and practice self care at home. Oh I love that and then immediately after it says. We are still treating chiropractic acupuncture patients. Oh good as your right. Oh and then you have symptoms of Blah Blah Blah. What the heck that makes no sense. Okay Oh it makes zero zero. We'll just keep this in mind. Guys there are people out there who are one hundred percent assured believing that this stuff is totally legitimate. Just like we think like going going physical. You know it's like it's part of their mill you that's it they believe it. Yeah but they're totally exploiting this platelet to promote themselves chiropractors. Some chiropractors are explicitly promoting themselves as a way of boosting your immune system or whatever to treat or prevent covert one thousand nine hundred. Yeah that's pathetic. That's horrible. Yeah not that any of us are surprised me. We've come to learn at. This is what they do. Well it's also just taking advantage of fear and uncertainty. That's out there. You know is basically snake oil salesmen. Do Right. Oh Yeah I'm actually seeing you know. We talked about this. Sometimes that in order to prep for new or in order for me to share kind of like I try to curate different news stories on my twitter feed. I'll go through feed reader every week and it's just been all cova one thousand nine. That's like you know it's hard to find a story. That's not covert related. So I get really excited when I see them but the cool thing is. I'm starting more and more to see at some of the outlets that I really like. People writing about the history of snake oils the history of harmful practices during times of fear and pandemics. And it's really cool that a lot of scientists story ends or digging up some of the things they saw during the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic or when Ebola. I came on the scene and how people were responding to them and writing about that so that we can learn from them. There's some really cool news articles out there. Yeah I mean. Obviously we're using the opportunity to get our message out as well but our messages. Listen to the experts. Yes it's early days. Still you can say novel Corona Virus But even pouching she and others are saying yeah. We're we're two weeks behind reality by the time we sort of get a handle on. What's happening that information's two-weeks-old so we're always playing catch up in a fast moving pandemic and people have gone back and said look there. Statements are changing. Of course they're changing very dynamic lurid situation. They're they're giving show your best information. They can at the time with caveats with the unknowns. You know it's as if it is if like in the middle of my dissertation. My My dissertation chair expected me to stop in the middle of Data Collection. And Give a press conference about all of my find. It like that's happening right now. We only just now collecting the data. We have not had time to analyze it. We're not at the end of the thing yet to be able to say with any certainty that this is how things are over such an impatient society up very much so the thing that drives me insane. Are The people who are critical on? I don't WanNa say guestimations but you know they're critical on projections. As an example. We take the best information we have. We use the the best methodology that we have to try and figure out what the future holds for things that are inherently very chaotic and they turned those types of predictions into they got it wrong and got well. Well we're trying to do. We're trying to make the best damn guesses and projections that we can. That's all that we have other thing is i. I hate it when you make a probabilistic statement you could say like it's ninety percent likely a is going to happen right and ten percent that not a will happen right and then he doesn't tap into you were wrong no are you said it was. It was one hundred percent ninety percent which means ten percent of the time. It's not going to be a right you have to look at the actual statistics say if those how accurate those and be where people who speak in absolutes anyways that's red flag thank you. Yeah that they're trying to sell you something. I think the part. That's so frustrating for me sort of to what you were speaking about. Jay is where individuals and you see this all the time where individuals will say okay. The warnings are out there. We have to social distance physical distance. Sorry we have to do X Y and Z. We have to get out in front of this thing and if we do that we'll be able to reduce the number of deaths because you know the the probabilistic statement is that will lose between X. People and ex people and then we do that. It starts working and they go see. It wasn't that bad every making so and you're watching that properly to to measures that were put in place recommend or the guidelines and recommendations by who the experts. It's amazing. I mean it's just incredible like you cannot get through to some people know. Look at its core. We as critical thinkers have established a trust in science We have a relationship with the methodology behind science and the people who practice that. And that's that is my baseline. That's my core. But the thing that just you know it's such a this is such a basic skeptical tenant that I don't care what the truth is. I just want to know what the truth is. My mood. I believe can change quickly with the right amount of information and proof right. That's that's the part. That's immutable here right. You're invested not invested in the end result. You're invested in the process and you're not sitting here trying to negotiate with truth to get a better outcome or one. That feels more when that feels like more politically salient. And that's a really difficult time. Right now is that there are world leaders there many world leaders and many governments or I should say governors and mayors here in the US who are looking at this thing an evidence based way and that's incredible to see in a time of crisis. They're saying I want to understand what the experts have to say. I want to talk to the garage. Epidemiologists I wanna see what these projections are and I want to do. What's right by the people? The problem is there are a handful of other world leaders. I don't think I have to be explicit. Who are just not interested in evidence and they wanna make decisions based on whether it either be their feelings whether it be what they wish. Were true what what would be more convenient to be true. None of us wish it were like this out there but we know the only road to getting past. This is to look at the
A little extra Time
"Welcome to catch myths and mysteries. Shyam your host kid chrome with everybody shelter in place. I thought it might be interesting to talk about time travel and with that in. Mind the paradox of time on time. Paradoxes any logical contradiction that has to do with time travel. The Classic Paradox Time Falls into the classic grandfather paradox. The grandfather paradox who's usually the screenplay turn novel then movie where the U. S. Nimitz is caught in a storm of thrush and back in time to December sixth nineteen forty one. The dilemma is what the crew knows. What's going to happen? But the grandfather paradox of time gets in the way when the past is changed. It creates a contradiction. The time traveller could do anything that did happen but can't do anything that didn't well an aircraft carrier the size of the Nimitz didn't exist back in nineteen forty one so anything they could have done would have altered the future in a big way. Fortunately the storm that sent them back in time reappeared and brought them back to their time before they could decide what to do for a little more detail watch the movie. The final countdown. I think it came out in the nineteen eighties. Should you can listen to Martin. Sheen explained the grandfather paradox. To Kirk Douglas. The topic of time travel bags of big question. How would travelers go forward or back in time? H She wells painted a picture of a time machine with his book. The time machine. It was simply a vehicle for going forward or back with little regard to the visitors passed or impact on the future or past for the past for that matter that then we have screenwriter Richard. Matheson who wrote somewhere in time and takes the issue of time travel to a new level in the movie. Christopher Reeves is a young theater students celebrating the success of his latest production when the party is interrupted by an elderly woman who break Suda crowd of well-wishers Impresa lock into his hand Luxembourg. The says come back to me long story short. He traces Salak at back. To a stage. Actress of Nineteen twelve and her summer retreat that has been restored to pristine nineteen twelve decor. He buys clothes from the era right down to the socks. He wears a pocket wash from that era than rents a room and focuses on all things nineteen twelve and remember. He's surrounded in a room and a facility that is all nineteen twelve and ZAP when he ventures back out into the hall so hours later it is indeed nine thousand nine hundred twelve and elderly woman is there and a romance began one day. It is raining so they decided to have a picnic and Gorse at some point. She asked the time when he pulls out the pocket. Watch a penny from nineteen. Eighty comes out with it and the spell is broken. Well all this talk of time. Travel's seems a stuff of fiction. The what about Deja Vu? The feeling that you've been there before or met that person before done that thing before could it be that you've visited another time and have a flash memory of the person you met. L. Let's bring it home. The was the last time that a day week or month just seemed to Fi- yet your routine hadn't changed. I can remember going to the gym a specific time day or I would meet a friend. We always did the same routine but after a year or so. We noticed that we were finished sooner than before our next meeting. We TIMED ISH. Exercise routine and the gaps between each workout. The Times were always the same yet. We would finish at different times out of that work at one meeting. We had to stop and re park our cars yet. We completed our usual routine at the same time we had established and still finished early. Not Time travel but perhaps time slip. The Earth spins at Specific Rate. Plants grow in predictable period of time. Are we humans of variable our perception of time altered for seemingly? No reason when I was in grammar school failed to complete my homework. I could still hear my teacher telling me that we all had the same twenty four hours in the day but do we. The world's most accurate clock has neatly shown how right Albert Einstein was a hundred years ago when he proposed that time is a relative concept and the higher you live above sea level. The faster you should age. Einstein's theory of relativity states at time and space are not as constant as everyday life would
"All Welcome to kiss Miss Misery. Sime your host kit chrome hoping you're healthy and staying sheltered in place today. I'm going to talk about scientific hiccups and I'll begin with the woolly mammoths arose about five point. One million years ago in Africa according to the curator at the American Museum of Natural History in New York from Africa the mammoth migrated throughout Europe Asia North America. Their evolution continued over millions of years eventually producing the woolly. Mammoth we know today. They began roughly two hundred fifty thousand years ago. Mammoths went extinct about ten thousand years ago. Hoops that's the first scientific hiccup more like three thousand five hundred years ago. Scientists now believe in isolated population of mammals persisted on Wrangel Island off northeastern eastern Costa Siberia and deep in Canada's Northwest Territory and World Heritage Site than Hani Valley. They were there until about three thousand seven hundred years ago. The ten thousand year more of extinction is in most textbooks though. But let's take a closer look at that date. The prominent theory that made it into most textbooks and the cyclopes. Pedia is ten thousand years ago because it was believed for decades at the mammoth migrated from the African continent through Eurasian orth America driven by the last ice age. What scientists called police to seen ice age following the food supply? If that's the case that it makes sense that some ended up in the valley because it was never touched by the last ice age and yes sponsor the mammoth have actually been found in that region. But this isn't the first theory published in a textbook as fact that is founded. It's been believed yes. Baited into text books that the continent of at Artika has been covered by ice for millions of years again. Oops scientific hiccup. The Perry reese map drawn in. Fifteen thirteen shows a northern coast of Antarctica. Ice-free the most puzzling aspect of the map isn't how it managed to be so accurate three hundred years before and articles discovered but that the map shows the real coastline under the ice geological. Evidence has confirmed. How could that have happened or been charted in an ice free age four thousand years ago which is what science states? That was the last time that Arctic was ice free officials. Science has been saying all along that the ice cap which covers the Antarctic is millions of years old. The Perry reese at Arctic amount shows it the northern part of that continent has been mapped before the ice covered it that could make us think it has been mapped a million years ago but that's impossible since mankind did not exist at that time. Furthermore accurate studies have proven that the last period of ice-free condition in that Arctic area the northern tip ended about six thousand years ago the question is who mapped Queen Maud Land of Antarctica. Six thousand years ago which unknown civilization had the technology or the need to do that. I want to state at this point. That the Perry map has been validated as being real and brought back to that data. Fifteen thirteen it is not a about that which made twenty years. I pushed office something true. I want to touch on just one. More scientific kick up nestled in the ancient city of Papun Kabul. Libya are stone blocks that were used to make up a series of pyramids each block. Wade from two hundred to four hundred tonnes. Nothing unusual there. The city dates back to five three six ad yet. The blocks are riddled with carved indentations and in the surrounding grasses were found giant staple liked clamps. That it in place and we're used to hold the blocks together. Wait a minute. How could the indigenous people with no knowledge of metallurgy have created these clamps and worded the metal used for them? Come from? But this isn't the only case of clamps be used to hold giants Jones together and Cambodia's Angor Watt giant sandstone blocks way nearly two tonnes were brought to the side of the temple from a nearby mountain bias. Here's waterways close inspection. The stones that are scattered around the side has revealed carved indentations receptacles for metal clamps. Says kind of interesting. How about an eerie coincidence? Just outside the magnificent ruins of anger. What Stanton Asian Pyramid temple known as boxy CAM gone now from? Cambodia travel eight thousand miles to Guatemala and the ancient Mayan city of Tacoma all among the long forgotten structures at to call is the temple of the Jaguar although the Cambodian pyramid is much smaller than the pyramid Guatemala. The similarities between the specific design features are uncanny both these ancient structures have an unusually steep slope angle that don't exist in other pyramids or temples however most importantly they both feature a stepped formation. There's a massive stairwell going up to the middle of both temples and there's a domed area located on top once there you could see. There's a small door goes inside the pyramid and there's another internal structure that looks the same basically. What you have here is an ancient civilization in Cambodia and another in Mesoamerica despite the fact that they are separated by more than nine thousand miles away featuring credible similarities that no one has been able to explain. Thus my idea of being a scientific hiccup because when you read in the textbooks is different than what facts
Finding Gratitude in the Midst of a Pandemic (Plus, Monica Shares an Excerpt from Chapter 7 of Messages from Above)
"Hi everyone and welcome to wine and spirits with me your host. Monica the medium. I know it's been quite some time since my last episode my apologies that it's taken a worldwide pandemic in quarantine for me to have the chance to release a new podcast. But Hey there's one of those silver linings of everything going on in the world right now so Yeah it's really kind of given us this ability to create space sand. Have some time in our hectic schedules to do some of these things that we don't normally have the opportunity to do our kind of regular every day schedule and whatnot. So that's definitely been something that I have been grateful for. That stems out of everything that's going on and I just wanted to spend some time to talk about some of those other things that we can be grateful for and appreciate even during these challenging times and so you know before I really share some of my thoughts with that I I also still WanNa take a moment to acknowledge the fact that hey look I know this. Pandemic has also created It's fair amount of challenges. Anxiety stress worry and grief for a lot of you guys so my heart absolutely goes out to each and every one of you who may be suffering as a result of what's happening in the world right now. You know the thoughts. I'm sharing this. Podcast are not intended to discredit or downplay. The sincere difficulties or challenges. That many of you might be facing at this time but instead is meant to a spread hope and inspire you to shift your perspective you know because even during the times of uncertainty the universe gives us gifts so I personally believe that the best way to really manage the difficult feelings emotions That come along with all of this is to focus on your mindset because really that's one of the few things that we do have control over right now so anytime I've started to feel anxious whether it be my own feelings or the emotions of those around me or even the global energy and emotions that I may be empathic. Lee Absorbed Hashtag 'em path problems. I'm sure many of you and pets can relate are anyway. I stop and remind myself that I HAVE THE POWER TO SHIFT MY PERSPECTIVE. And and so you guys. Each and every one of us has that ability to change our thoughts to shift that perspective to find the head and blessings to find the silver lining each and every one of us can focus on gratitude for the things we are still so blessed to have even during challenging times and even in the face of loss so and that's all types of loss loss of a loved one of course loss of a job Loss of an event that you were looking forward to or a vacation. You were excited about You know you can absolutely still find gratitude and find the positive things in your life I'm hoping that this encourages you to to face. These fears. Face these feelings that you might be experiencing and use them as an opportunity for growth and understanding One thing that I personally find helpful is to really try to pinpoint. What exactly is exacerbating? The feelings that you're experiencing And then take action accordingly so for example if you are really going to look at. Where's my anxiety stemming from where's my worry stemming from are you feeling more anxious every time You know you have spent an hour or whatever reading the latest news about cove in nineteen you know. Be Aware of that. If it's the news or social media that's making you feel more on edge making you feel more anxious making you feel stress making those worries and thoughts run endlessly then changed the damn channel or unfought lower mute. Those accounts better yet. Turn off your devices for an hour even the whole day if you can. This is especially important for us and paths because even if we aren't feeling that stress or anxiety or fear. There's a chance that you might be absorbing Matt fear panic anxiety worries of those around you or even the world at large you know a lot of us are feeling it from a global standpoint so just be sure to check in with yourself really reflect on where are some of these feelings stemming from is it a person that is calling you you know a lot of us are using this to connect with friends and family using facetime and zoom and everything in positive ways but if there's somebody who's maybe taking advantage of that and is actually Abusing Matt resource abusing that ability to connect with you that way to offload in a way. That's only making it harder for you. By giving them are giving you all of their concerns. Their stresses of Financial worries in their job security. And all of these things. Of course we want to be an open ear and lend support and love and compassion to the people around us but also know that it's okay to kind of set some ground rules and set the boundaries around at two in being careful that you're not extending yourself so much that it's actually making it harder on you and your energy in your motion so just being cognizant of kind of the way that you're interacting with people how you're letting people into your You know even virtual space. Because obviously you're not really letting people into your physical space and also remembering the check in with yourself throughout the day because in doing so you often. We'll have an intuitive sense. If those emotions you're experiencing do not belong to you. Were if they were emotions or feelings that you might have absorbed from from other so call upon your angels To help you release them. I like to call upon Archangel Michael and visualize him pouring pitcher of white light down my Crown Shaqra and really cleansing. My whole body of any fears worries anxieties and so forth also really tried to engage in the healthy forms of stress management Because sometimes it can be easy to go into a place of distraction with unhealthy forms of stress management like drinking or stress eating emotional eating all of those things but finding those healthy forms of managing your worries and fears such as journaling. Meditating reading calling that loved one but only after setting the ground rules that may be certain topics are off limits the seaward off limits or doing you know whatever else helps you feel more grounded and more at ease because ultimately you know yourself better than anyone else. There's been a lot of recommendations and advice and tips out there right now but really go within. What is it that makes you feel a bit? Calmer what makes you feel more at ease? What helps you detach in a healthy way from all the stress and worry and really help you to kind of slow down and so yeah spend some time reflecting on that and figuring out what works for you so I encourage each and every one of you guys to really close your eyes and spend some time reflecting on some of the silver lining kind of just says I spoke about earlier some of the silver linings in this situation? I personally have been doing a lot of journaling during this time. So yes. That's what's been working for me are really been helping a lot of journaling. A lot of meditational self reflection time in solitude and quiet time It also just so happens to be that I'm teaching a round of the mice exp- online course that was planned. I mean this has been planned over six months ago and had the start date March sixteenth. So that has been a healthy distraction that just so happen to start at the very beginning of really when most of all of the quarantines and everything started and really. I don't think it was a coincidence. I do believe that spirit in a universe made. It happened that way knowing that my students would have this extra space and time in their schedules to spend dedicating to connecting spirit and strengthening their gifts and whatnot. So that's been really cool but I'm yes do do spend some time reflecting in your own way and seeing kind of what comes through that
"Welcome to kids miss and mystery. Sign your host kit crumbs all this week. We've been talking about and researching psychics clairvoyance paranormal things with crystal balls and Ouija boards. Next week we start Wednesday with interviews with a psychic and clairvoyant and I thought since clairvoyance talk to spirits it only appropriate that today I provide you with a real ghost story. Let me tell you finding a real ghost story. It can be as simple as going to the library or bookstore but the ghost story. I'll read today. Came to me from an individual with what I can only call real life experience as you listen. Keep in mind that I'm reading. Someone else's encounter with the ghost mildly contribution to the tail is traditional editing. I found necessary. Otherwise the words make up. The story are all authors who assured me are all true and because she was simply writing about her encounter. There will be no title to the story. Here we go ellen. Richmond rides about her encounter with the ghost as follows. The room was small behind attached to a store that sold all things. What got the curtains were pulled shut on the only two windows but only partially blocked out the light in the middle of the room was around table and six chairs one was more like thrown or the medium would sit. We were instructed to hold hands. There were no candles know. Incense the room was bare. Except for the table and chairs. We were five childhood friends on the verge of college. We'd lost one. Recently Billy had drowned. We'd pooled our money and sought out Madam Hester. She reminded me of my grandmother and more the face. A thousand lives with no attempt to hide wrinkle. Silver Hair tied back tight. She spoke with smokers voice. We were instructed to remain silent until contact was made at which time each of us could ask one question beginning with me and moving clockwise. She made it clear we were to ask a single simple question. Batum Hester unlike a TV medium didn't chant or roller head from left to right and when she made contact she didn't nod the only indication of contact when she spoke. And it was billy's voice. We all exchange looks of amazement. What is Your Question Ellen? When Billy's voice spoke my name I felt lightheaded but managed to ask. What was your favorite form of transportation? Matama Hester was sitting. Ramrod-straight is fixed on the center of the table. I think I was holding my breath until billy answered my question my bicycle. That was it a two word answer. Jesse was next and ask if billy like math. We all knew that he hated math. This time his answer was a single syllable. No it had been decided by Jesse and his girlfriend Sarah who sat on his right that the three of us should establish that we were really speaking with billy. Nothing in this obituary or at his funeral would have provided information about his love for his bicycle. In eight of math. Sarah had always flirted with bill and I knew who question would make or break. The seance did you kiss me under the old weeping willow tree no can the answer under the Nolan Street Bridge. I leaned forward nodded at Sarah. Whose eyes were like saucers. I heard Tom take a deep breath. Give us a physical sign. As evidenced in connection has truly been made you could have heard a pin drop as we waited for a response than the room was filled with the sound of that. Stupid Bell. Billy. Used to ring when he wrote his bike wanted to get someone's attention. Mickey gave my hand squeeze his would be the last question but it would break Madam. Hesters rule his question would be a single requestion. Definitely not simple. We all miss you. Billy and we'll be leaving the area and the end of summer and would like to see you one last time to say goodbye. I could hear my heartbeat. My Eyes Burn with the request. I'd know billy since I was three. We were best friends. All of us were on a picnic on the riverbank when he decided to go for a swim my last memory of his broad shoulders back and Bright Red Trunks. Z. Waded into the water. His answer came as a shock. Meet me at my grave. Batum Hester raised her gaze from the center of the table. I hope all your questions were answered. She said I would have thought that his answer meet me at my grave would have been followed with at midnight but it was broad daylight. Four o'clock we all piled into the SUV. That Jesse's parents had given him the graduation. The town's only cemetery was located just past industrial district at the south end of town Jesse parked at the front. We climbed out and walked as one pass the older section of the cemetery to the Green Tree Lawn. That made up the newest portion. Billy simple headstone was located next to. The fence separated the older section from the newest when I saw him sitting on his headstone. I look left and right I was alone and realize that I'd kept walking but everyone else had stopped when they sign. I took a couple more steps until I was arm's length away. At that moment I realized my face wet with tears I reached out. I'll miss you but never forget. He raised a hand in extended his index finger. There couldn't have been more than an inch between fingers when billy vanished. An I fainted. That was eight years ago but I remember billy on his gravestone like yesterday. I'm currently er nurse and often work at night shift alone. Of course with the doctor on call. I've never had any other paranormal experiences. But carry a picture of billy many nights. When I'm alone I call out his name. There's never a response but I never feel lonely.
Eilean Mor Lighthouse Keepers - Scotland
"Setting for this story revolves around the Flan in aisles. Lighthouse the seventy five foot. Lighthouse was constructed between eighteen ninety five and eighteen ninety nine and cost about six thousand nine hundred pounds sterling which is a great British pounds and that's equivalent to about million dollars in two thousand nineteen money The Lighthouse was first lit on December seventh eighteen ninety nine so this lighthouse sits on. I lean more which literally means large island in Scottish Gaelic and is part of the plan. An aisles. A small island chain on the west coast of mainland Scotland. The islands have been devoid of permit residents since the automation of the flat. Isles Lighthouse in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. So Joe Have you ever bad into the Scotland? Scotland or Ireland. I have I have not either. It's like a lot of things it's on the list. The aisles provide nesting population of seabirds most notably the Atlantic. Puffins there is also a population of rabbits brought to the island by the lighthouse keepers other than Sea Birds in rabbits. There's no real hostile animals on the on the island so That'll rule out any kind of animal attack in the story. Yeah the island of Eileen more for centuries was regarded as a magical place with cer- a certain powerful aura surrounding it sheep herders. Who are the only ones knowns regularly visit? The island called it the other country and believed to be populated by spirits a fairy folk elves and supernatural beans as well as giant birds. Which were said to prowl the area so sounds like a pretty terrifying island. I actually don't want to visit it now. What's funny is it's really small islands just kind of flat. Yeah I won't say flee it's not like plateau wish but I mean it's not like it's huge and jagged so it's kind of funny to think about you think about people back then and there's not much going on so their imagination goes wild. Yeah that's all I can think of is like if you're a sheep herder and you gotta go to the island with your sheep every now and then like you've nothing else to do in expert thinking about this stuff. Yeah it's probably like a self fulfilling myth they hear it from somebody and then you know they probably morphed into these crazy. Stories of supernatural means giant birds over centuries of elephants. Yeah so Yeah the sheep herders and fishermen who visited the island were said to US special rituals to protect themselves from these magical island inhabitants and were said to communicate with them through a special dialect just for this purpose so these guys taking it serious yeah. They formed their own language to to speak with these spirits. So nine thousand nine hundred style. Lopping yeah there. You Go Even before the incident at the lighthouse there have been several stories about mysterious creatures and other things that gave people pause about the island so it sounds like if you lived back in that time. It's it's not somewhere he'd go with your family for vacation. You'd probably try to avoid the island. Yeah I think it exists solely basically to provide the lighthouse and to keep shifts from basically crashing into this island chain. So we'll talk about the lighthouse keepers of the. Eileen more they had if you can imagine a relatively easy job they worked in shifts with three men on and one enjoying two weeks off at all times. Okay so they're always three guys there in one guy off going back. Home was on the island at the time. The three men working that lighthouse that day. Where James do qat? He's forty three years old. Donald MacArthur Forty and Thomas Marshall. Who's twenty eight so I'm GonNa go right into the time line since it was a long time ago? It's based off of diary entries and captain's logs of the boat that was approaching to relieve a one of the men at the lighthouse. So on December Fifteenth Nineteen Hundred Captain Holman aboard the American steamboat. The Ark tour pass by Eileen Moore and notice that the lighthouse was out of operation so this is December fifteenth home and sent out a wireless telegram informing the mainland of the issue. It was for unknown. Reasons not immediately passed onto the northern Lighthouse board which is who is in charge of administering lighthouse. In addition to this First Oversight The lighthouses regularly monitored by telescope from the nearby. Lewes island by a guy named Roderick. Mackenzie Mackenzie had failed to notice that the light was out. The assumption is that there was thick mist in the area had obstructed views since it was just by a telescope for over a week. Known was sure what had happened on the island so they noticed the light was on the fifteenth. Yeah on December twenty sixth in one thousand nine hundred Captain Jim Harvey was bringing the fourth attendant. Joseph more so that has no relation to the name of the island is just coincidence. That the guy's name was more and they're going to the Eileen more so he was going to the lighthouse as the relief Attendant as the ship approached the island. He noted that something was off the re. The relief flag was not flying and no one was waiting the arrival at the landing of the more so he sounded the whistle on the boat and shot a flare to try and catch lighthouse keepers attention but the island continued to remain silent. So Joseph Moore wrote ashore in a row boat and went up the stairs from the from where he docks the boat that went up to lighthouse and according to reports from more himself. The replacement lighthouse keeper suffered an overwhelming sense of foreboding on his long. Walk up to the top of the cliff so he can almost feel. There is something not right so once at the lighthouse more notice something was immediately wrong the door the lighthouses unlocked and in the entrance hall. Two of three oilskin coats were missing. More continued onto the kitchen area where he found a half eaten food in an overturned chair. Almost as if someone jumped from their seat in a hurry to add to this particular scene the kitchen clock it also stopped more. Continue to search the rest the lighthouse but found no sign of lighthouse keepers. He ran back to the ship to inform Captain Harvey who subsequently ordered a search. The Island for the missing men known was ever found Harvey. This is the captain. The ship quickly sent back telegram to the mainland which in turn was forwarded to the northern Lighthouse Board headquarters in Edinburgh the Telegraph read. A dreadful accident has happened at the Flanigan's the three keepers Kat Marshall and the occasion and the occasional have disappeared from the island on our arrival there. This afternoon. No sign of life was to be seen on the island fired a rocket but as no responses made managed to land more who went up to the station but found no keepers there. The clocks were stopped and other signs indicated that an accident must have happened about a week ago. Poor fellows they must bend blown over the cliffs or drawn trying to secure a crane or something like that night coming on. We could not wait to make something as to their fate. I have left more McDonald and boy master in two seamen on the island to keep the light burning until you make other arrangements will not return to Obama until I hear from you. I have repeated this wire to moorhead in case you're not at home. I will remain at the Telegraph office tonight until it closes. If you wish to wire me. So that was his telegram a few days later Robert. Morehead the Board Superintendent who both recruited knew. All three men personally departed for the island to investigate the disappearance. His investigation of the lighthouse found nothing over and above. What more had already reported that is except for lighthouses? Lock so this work. It's interesting muirhead immediately. Noticed that the last few days of entries entries were very unusual on the twelfth of December. Thomas Marshall the second assistant wrote of severe wins the likes of which he had never seen before in twenty years he also noticed that James do cut the principal keeper had been very quiet and that the Third Assistant William MacArthur had been crying. I'm just picturing the scene it. It just reminds me of In movies where there's like people can find somewhere. How before something really bad happens. They're all just acting really strange and yeah. They started to go mad a little bit. Yeah yeah that's that's I I'm with you and that's exactly what I was thinking. So what's really strange about? The final remarks was that William Macarthur was a season Mariner it was known on the Scottish mainland as a tough brawler. So why would he be crying about a storm? And that's I mean if you can just imagine if you go there now yeah I mean bar fights drinking that type of thing so you have this guy here. That's like a big tough guy. You know brought to tears over a storm. I mean initially people from Scotland. There tough tough people. This is a third hand story that someone I know that's from Ireland. Told me you know like when they say tough brawler this happened. I ten fifteen years ago. He was in a bar in Scotland in this American walked in and kind of like a Dorky looking American and ask where the bathroom was and apparently somebody in the park didn't like that and literally bottled him. And that bottling is just. They broke a beer bottle over the back of his head. I don't know the story is true. But that's sound like stereotypical Scotland Bar. Like so I I believe it. Yeah WanNa believe it soccer team just lost and they're pissed off and yeah football team. Mike you'RE GONNA get body falls. Sorry but yeah. They're tough so log entries on the thirteenth December state at the storm is still raging and that offer men had been praying but why would three experience lighthouse keeper safely situated under Brand New Light House? That was one hundred fifty feet above sea level. Be Praying for storm to stop. This should be perfectly safe in theory. Even more particular peculiar is that there were no reported. Storms in the area on the Twelfth Thirteenth Fourteenth of December. In fact the weather was calm in the storms that were to batter. The island didn't hit until December seventeenth. So that's kind of what get strange about this because it's not some island off the mill nowhere. Yeah it's very close to mainland. So they would know if there were storms like that actually occurring at that time. Yeah and like you said they were all very experienced. They were stationed in a brand New Light House. That I'm sure the lighthouse still standing to this
Carrie Meets Kimberly Meredith: Single-Blind Edition
"Welcome to own a rousing. Carry the show where we don't just report on fringe science spirituality and claims of the paranormal but take part ourselves when they make the claims. We show up. So you don't have to. I'm Ross Blocher. I'm just getting. This is Keri. Poppy Ross has not with me today. So we are both practicing social distancing as responsible members of society this episodes just to be me and our guest aunts. Ross's off rush editing. The episode you got last week the the huge corona virus massive episode. That we hope you all enjoyed while he was off making that I was off making this because we need. This was a really important time to talk about Cures real cures fake cures real treatments fo- treatments and there's a lot of treatments out there. Even for Corona virus. There are people who say that they can treat run a virus in ways that buck against our understanding of the science so wanted to better understand. those perspectives and that led me to a medical intuitive. Name's Kimberly Meredith now. Kimberly was at the conscious life. Expo when Ross and I were there We didn't get to talk to her then but I did stop her booth and ended up on her mailing list which is how I found out that she had written an e book about Corona Virus. I thought that yearbook and sort of went on a little adventure finding out a little more about Kimberly About her claims and invited her on the show to chat. So that's what you're going to hear here before you do. I just want to Kind of give you a little peek into my head space as I was doing this interview and preparing for this interview. Something that I've been thinking about a lot Especially during this outbreak but also just in the last couple years is a storytelling and how it works. It's easiest to tell a story when there is a clear villain and a clear victim. Those our favorite kinds of stories. They are the easiest sink. Our teeth into all you have to get rid of the bad guy. I think. An outbreak especially a viral outbreak. We realized how oversimplified that kind of story is there. Are people behaving badly when there's viral outbreak but there isn't one bad guy unless you believe it was created in elapsed where which it wasn't The virus of course has no intention of hurting. You just evolved like you did and yet it can do this tremendous harm and I think that there are impulses in the human mind. That are the same way that evolved For neutral ends but ended up being super super harmful I think that's what we're dealing with a bit in bad treatments for Corona virus bad treatments for anything it also is the case that sometimes we have good motives but bad information and good motives and bad information can still be a deadly combination. And I think that's what's happening here. I think Kimberly is sincere. Thinks she's Dudley wrong. You'll see why Dan Arieli. Who is a psychological expert in lying and deception? He wrote a great book called the Honest Truth. About dishonesty and one of the big things I learned from it was that dishonesty increases the most when we think we are being altruistic. Yes people live our personal gain. That's absolutely true. People live for monetary gain. Also true people lie to in arguments also true the biggest most powerful factor to make some lie is that they believe they're doing it for a greater purpose. I just wanted to put that bug in your ear before you hear this conversation I also apologize for the audio in this. We were talking via skype. Because that's the safest way to talk right now here. She is Kimberly Meredith. I'm happy to have on the show with me Kimberly Meredith. She describes herself as a medical intuitive. A healer psychic surgeon radio host former registered nurse and author of the new e Book Corona Virus. Twenty-one TIPS FOR PROTECTION. Kimberly is a trance chandler. She's a spiritual teacher and she says she's the most scientifically validated medical intuitive. And this interview is especially timely and important because right now as we're recording this the world is looking for a solution to this deadly cove in nineteen corona virus outbreak. And because Kimberly offers diagnosis and healing of the viral infection. And any other illness via her one. Our skype sessions. So please welcome. Kimberly Meredith Hugh Carey eggs for having me. My pleasure Did I get all of that right? I'm pretty match and think so I have been tested in a lot of different institutions with my medical medium ship. And it's been interesting doing all that. Yeah that's really really rare right but Then a medical intuitive gets that sort of a backing from the scientific establishment. Yeah I guess so I mean you you say you're the most scientifically validated so It's my perception that it's pretty rare. Is that not yours. Well I can only go with what has happened to me because I wasn't doing this for very long. I started doing my medical finding out that I was in medical medium. Just only since two thousand fourteen okay medical medium before Serta Now medical media and happened because I had a near death. Experience and after the end ee I became a Trans Channel. And after I started becoming trans-channel I found out that I was having the gifts of medical medium ship. Which is I have an unusual ability of scanning people with my hands and my ice rink in different codes. In the code linking Gives me information of where things are people's bodies that have cancer different illnesses and when that started to happen the word got out to many people including scientists in different doctors which led me to two different institutions? That wanted to test my abilities and not let you double blind studies and then began gap that I had these unique abilities. Finding things were correcting accurate in people's bodies. So tell us then about before the accident before the near Death Experience. What was your then a lot different than it is. Now I had a unique live. You know I work in dimensions now. Three D. Two fifty so I would say back then it was more of a third dimensional world which is what we're seeing right now. Which is very three D. I worked in a hospital and I worked on television shows worked on Grey's anatomy at work to General Hospital. I worked on brothers and sisters. I was called Medical Technical Advisor. Man I would set up shows. It looked like actual medical scenes were happening. Were people are having cardiac arrest that would work for directors real as possible and I also worked in a hospital side. Would you double double life like that? Oh interesting yes so you have this nursing backgrounds and then you moved from that more Gosh I don't even know what's called that more clinical field to this more spiritual angle before that transition you were working as an r. n. A registered nurse. Working Working Hospital and working in very sings came from you know got all kinds of medical things. I did was the CNA. Albion in various types of nursing all General floors and all over the place and then I went into doing medical technical advising until June shows and then I got hit by a car on foot in two thousand thirteen an academy an experience and then in the near death experience led me into having these multiple healing abilities. Now that I have a full blown craft California ed you Conventions and expos than and healing on people now and helping them find out what's going on with them so what happens. During that. Near death experience I went to the other. Siding came back and it was quite amazing. What soup like well I saw visions of Jesus and the Holy Spirit comes through my body. Awhile I left my body and I was envisioned envisioned Emceeing GOD Christ a Come through me and telling me that I was okay. I was going to stay here. And it was very frightening with seeing myself outside of my body and seeing them working on at the same time. I wasn't quite sure what's happening. Since like outside your body looking inside the same time I was experiencing a lot of light going through my eyes it was very traumatic experience.
The Skeptics Guide
"Hey guys and Evan Bernstein practicing social distancing via podcasting since two thousand five fifteen years of preparation to this moment paying off talking about the fact that it's good that we have is entirely. I accept that stage. Show thing that we're training up around the time. Hot cast over the A lot of it is online so evan. We missed you last week but I missed you guys. She is doing well thank you. I appreciate the people who have written to me privately and sent well wishes and everything. I've expressed the Jennifer. She very much appreciates it as well. She is on the mend so nice. Yeah so we're getting to the end of our second week of lockdown You know we're managing. We're making adjustments. I think I think a lot of people are learning ways to keep busy to restructure their life. You know I do think that You know people are settling in for the long haul. You know like the First Week. You're like all right. I can do this. You know this is just. You're thinking a week you know like you're not really wrapping your head around the fact that wow this could really go on a long time now. In the second week I'm hearing from a lot of people started to really hit them like this could be while we gotta really make adjustments to our day-to-day structure. You Know Yep yeah I mean bottom line is it's just a life changes and Cara was saying before the show that she's off her schedule right. Everybody's off their most people are off their normal schedule. And you gotta you gotta get creative. And you've got to work with everyone you know you gotta you're cooped up with whoever you're cooped up with maybe up. God forbid you're alone you know some people are alone. A lot of Get on Google hangouts in touch with people like that. They are actually starting to try and like I think the. Who and a lot of larger organizations are wanting to start to phase out the phrase social distancing and phase in physical distancing because you need to be social Right yeah because we don't want to encourage people to not have psychological wellbeing like we need to be in touch with people that we love just not physically in touch because it is hard and also I struggle with this like if I don't have to wake up for on the calendar I will sleep. I will just sleep and sleep and sleep on the couch rolling over like A. I'm going to eat. And then Rollover Watch. Tv Rollover and fall asleep. I Know Har- of a alternates. Cara in some alternate universe. If only you knew somebody who works from home. I have the worst kind of like work from home hygiene and Yeah. I know people who are so good at waking up taking a shower putting on shoes like into their clothes and put. That's crazy talk. That's and that's how they maintain a sense of kind of sanity. Shoes on negative measures are no shoes onto underwears completely optional. This point seriously like three days I should probably change from. It show. It's interesting. Those are all day day schedule is actually not different. This is nine Donald quite as many patients and their online. It's all telehealth but I have to be dressed professionally so I have to. I'm dressing the same way I do for work just sitting in front of my computer rather than going does structure my day. Who there's a. There's a joke there with Dr above the Waist Party boy on the. I don't know something like that can. I'm doing therapy online. But no I'm doing therapy over the phone. I'm doing therapy but but it's over the phone so it really doesn't matter what I look like which it's tough. I still go to office because yeah I'm considered essential. Yeah as an accountant. Yeah they carved out a notch for us at least in the state of Connecticut. They did in which we can go in and I do have clients who still want to see me. They're all in one on one appointments and we're doing all the correct things keeping the ceiling wiping down. Definitely the six foot rule and limited contact. There's even elbow bumps at this point you know we've just stops all all touching right. How typical is Yale's stash of tests across lake other hospitals because I have been the most insane horror stories of people going into the hospital with a fever and a cough getting tested for strep and influenza and when they find those negative saying unless you've been exposed to somebody who traveled outside of the country? We cannot afford to give you a task. You my is sick in bed with what I think is Tova. And they're like can't do it. We don't have enough test to go around. A friend of mine from medical. School is on the front lines in New York State. That has the most cases each other's zoo that they're basically just trying to separate the covert cases from the non code cases. And they are. They are overwhelmed. So yeah and there's a critical shortage of PPA the personal protection stuff. So don't definitely don't hort. Don't buy masks. If you're not a healthcare provider we're going to be talking about some specific things you know in the beginning of the news items as well but really don't anything you feel like you need to do to to protect yourself that involves You know hoarding something or getting something. You probably don't need to do it. And you're probably taking away a critical resource from healthcare providers. So you really should only be doing it. Under your doctor's advice is a sort of good rule of thumb. You don't try. Don't try to short-track anything. Feel like you've got like the inside scoop on something and you're going to be doing something to give yourself in edge. You're probably going to be doing something counterproductive if you do that you know. I've been in lockdown now. I think almost three weeks here in la it was only mandated within the last week or two. But I self quarantined early. Just because that's what health officials were saying we should do. I left once for the grocery store and that was it. Been getting my groceries delivered but last Friday. I was actually asked to go into the studios. Kcet which is one of the networks involved in the kind of family of networks here in Southern California and I filmed a bunch of content for their at home learning initiative so between KCET PBS. Oh Cal and The LA USD The Los Angeles Unified School district. They came up with a bunch of great curriculum for all kids like starting in kindergarten. All the way up to twelfth grade and I got to film a bunch of stuff for all of the math and science content so if you're in southern California highly recommended if your kids are home and they need you know. They're not in school yet because school hasn't come back online yet. Show them show them case. The there's a lot of great programming at home learning. I think it's like pbs dot org slash at home learning to learn more about it. I'm not sure if outside of southern California it's available it may be online though so I would still give it a try. Lots of also a good time for the teaching company and this is just kind of but they have lots of content. They are producing some special content. Because you know people are at home and hungry for it and that's good quick quick update on the numbers so as you're recording this. The number of confirmed corona virus cases. Four hundred sixty eight thousand two were approaching half a million number of deaths is twenty one thousand one hundred and eighty five so unfortunately the death rate is going up The the current death rate if you just count completed cases closed cases is sixteen percent. Wow if you look at all cases it's four point five percent so that the death rate that's probably because of Italy because it'll really hit hard and Italy has. I was really. I was interested in why it leaves getting hit so hard and we know that a lot of it is the way cultural edged but but we also know that they have a much older population. And that because it's not so much. Why are they getting hit so hard? It's wise their death rate so high compared to everybody else's her number of cases and yet it seems to be the case that they have a very aging population lack of two. Yeah they don't have enough they don't have enough just like everybody else doesn't have enough. But they were severely short in as far as ratios goes my understanding but I also was reading across the board that they actually have a pretty decent health in frustration last year and it was really good And north heads like we might not even have beds but the fact that they so. It's a combination obviously of factors but it does seem to be the case that like the actual age of the general population skews significantly older and Italy and we know older. People are at highest risk right and so that that does seem to affect the number of people who who die per the number of people who get the disease and also as we know this may be an underrepresentation. It may be an overrepresentation because there is we absolutely. Don't know the real number of people with With Co with
Prepared for Covid 19
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host kid chrome. I have received so many responses to my podcast of a few weeks ago. Who's on the front line requesting these statistics that I thought I would repeat this podcast once again. First of all. What is the front line by military definition? It is where the heaviest fighting takes place. The front line. In relation to the corona virus consists of fifteen thousand nursing homes consistent at one point seven million beds occupied by one point four million patients five thousand retirement communities there are currently fifty million seniors living in the United States in that makes up the front line. Now during this original podcast. We were thinking only two seniors were vulnerable now. We've found that anybody can catch the corona virus back to the podcast back to the original question of who is on the front line. Although I can't right off the doctors is sheer numbers. It is the nurse and the Certified Nurses Assistant. At has a media contact with patients and that will slow the onslaught of the corona virus. We look at numbers of nursing homes retirement communities as well as a total number of seniors which stands at fifty million to do battle. There are two point. Eight six million registered nurses in one point five million certified nursing assistance. Do the math and you end up with a combined. Total of nurses and CNA's at around five million treating potential potential of fifty million victims of the corona virus. Now keep in mind that the nineteen eighteen Spanish flu killed fifty million people but that was worldwide was seniors generally considered to be those sixty five and older talk about the overwhelm. Worst case scenario would be that ten million patients per nurse now. That's that's really reaching but seeing how at the time of this podcast. Seniors were the earmarked for the corona virus. And now we know that people twenty thirty and forty are also vulnerable. That figure doesn't seem quite so ridiculous. Saw Ten million patients per nurse. But let's continue to put this in perspective the CDC estimates that up to thirty one million have caught the flu this season with two hundred ten thousand to three hundred. Seventy thousand. Flu suffers hospitalized because of the virus so that is the regular flu season here in the United States so far the new corona virus has led to more than two hundred twenty thousand illnesses more than nine thousand three hundred deaths but that's worldwide and that number has changed drastically since sedate three nineteen twenty of this podcast but that's nothing compared with the flu also called the influenza in the US alone the fluids caused an estimated thirty six million illnesses three hundred and seventy thousand hospitalizations to iron twenty thousand deaths in this season according to the Centers for Disease Control and again that is worldwide that said scientists have studied seasonal flu for decades so despite the danger of it. We know a lot about flu virus season and what to expect each season in contrast very little is known about the new corona virus and the disease causes dubbed Covert Nineteen. Because it's so new this means Cova. Nineteen is something of a wild card in terms of how far will spread how quickly it will spread and who will be vulnerable and how many deaths will cause why because we have no vaccine for it and very little testing in the United States. As of this podcast and again that was on the nineteenth. Cna Yes doctors are holding their own on the front line however it has been reported by all three healthcare professionals doctors nurses and CNA's that they are under and ill-equipped liking beds respirators even swabs not to mention a lack of personal protective gear for them and ems operators. Indeed this one doctor said the current situation is like sending a highly trained soldier to the front line but not giving him bullets for his gun will how this battle will go only well-equipped doctors nurses and CNA's be able to turn the
The Spanish Flu
"After over two hundred fifty original and different stories. I've had so many requests to repeat one on the forgotten pandemic the Spanish flu. I decided to repeat that podcast. Now I am reading this with a few changes involved. It was. The Spanish. Flu was an unusually deadly pandemic involving the h. One and one influenza virus in infected five hundred million people around the world or about twenty seven percent of the world population which was around one point nine billion at the time this is nineteen eighteen over fifty million people died yet it was overshadowed by the end of World War One the war to end all wars the creation of the armistice. The Spanish flu was so forgotten. That encyclopedia Britannica didn't include it. In its review of the most eventful events of the Twentieth Century World War One ended in November of Nineteen. Eighteen in this faddish Lou peaked just a month later in early. January nineteen eighteen which means that the flu was going on during World War. One more people died from the Spanish flu than died from bullets in World War. One think about that more people died in the Spanish flu than the war basically. That's it. The economic impact of the United States came in at about one hundred and sixty six point. Five billion dollars now remember. This was nineteen eighteen that would be nearly a trillion dollars in today's dollars areas of the. Us were hit hard. In the winter of one thousand nine hundred eighteen coal deliveries were so affected that many people in New England all along the East Coast couldn't keep their homes warm and they froze to death that winter thousands of businesses across the country were closed. Not for a lack of staff so much as those that were out sick with the flu. It was said that an individual a healthy adult could come in with symptoms of flu. Spanish flu in the morning. Be Sick throughout the day and the following morning he or she would be dead in September of Nineteen Eighteen Philadelphia. Held its liberty loan parade to raise money for war bonds. The patriotic procession consisted of soldiers. Boy Scouts marching bands and local dignitaries and stretch for two miles over two hundred thousand spectators packed the sidewalks seventy two hours after the parade all thirty one hospitals Philadelphia were full and twenty. Six hundred people died with by the end of that week. The Public Health Response. Saint Louis couldn't have been more different. This is something we need to pay attention to today. Even before the first case of Spanish flu have been reported in the city health commissioners looking at other cities and states and the commissioner Dr Max Stark off had local physicians on high alert and Rodent aditorial on the Saint. Louis Post dispatch about the importance of voiding crowds in San Francisco. Health officials put their full faith behind gauze masks and isolation California governor. William Stevens declared that it was a patriotic duty of every American citizen to wear a mask and stay in quarantine. San Francisco eventually made it law citizens cotton public without a massacre worried. Improperly were arrested charged with disturbing the peace and fine five dollars but the Spanish flu circle the Earth. Three times and San Francisco's luck ran out when the third wave of the Spanish flu struck in January. Nineteen nineteen believing mass. Were the main reason that they done so well. With the first wave of the Spanish flu they felt is what saved them. Businesses and theaters. This is during the third wave fought back against public idea that you couldn't gather in public as a result. San Francisco ended up suffering some of the highest death rates from the Spanish flu. Nationwide that proves the isolation. A quarantine makes a difference. The two thousand seven analysis found that if San Francisco had kept all of its anti-flu protections in place. That would be quarantined. Through the spring of Nineteen nineteen could have reduced deaths by ninety percent the immediate economic consequences of nineteen eighteen down from the panic surrounding the spread of the flu. Large cities including New York and Philadelphia were essentially temporarily shut down as their populations became bedridden as it is now in Italy. A lot of lessons to be learned here. Businesses were closed in both cities. Sporting events cancelled private gatherings council including funerals band so that they could spread the disease. So what's the takeaway aside from a history lesson a Lotta takeaways the lesson from nineteen eighteen or many but there are three that standout I the public health response to the spread of the disease must focus on containment? The reason why the nineteen eighteen pandemic resulted in so many death was as so many people caught the disease so fast in the first place and that was before containment that was before quarantined. That was when people were wondering what's going on. This isn't a regular flu season. They were exposed. Because policymakers failed to stop the spread. Indeed there in actions helped spread the flu more widely communicable disease control policy works researchers found that US cities which implemented efforts to reduce infectious contact between people early in nineteen. Eighty outbreak had significantly lower peak death rates than cities that were later to adopt disease containment policies. The second lesson is a good information is Akitas to disease control. We cannot afford a media blackout or worse. An Act of disinformation campaign and we can already see that terrible consequences of such policies in Iran and China. The truth always comes out eventually. There is nothing to be gained from hiding it. Indeed government stand to lose if censorship leads to social unrest political. Scientists are speculating on the long term. Political impact of media manipulation of the corona virus news from China and remember there are three classic stressors that create fear that is something that is unpredictable uncontrollable and sustained and from those three. Stressors comes fear. Communication gets rid of those stressors. The third lesson is that we must prepare for the economic and human consequences of the virus enact to minimize its impact. This pandemic is both a shock to demand and supply justice. So disease is highly contagious. So too is the economic crisis in causes the Labor lost from implementing the recommended fourteen days of self-isolation for suspected cases alone will have serious economic him implications no doubt closing down entire regions or countries are as recently enacted. Italy will no doubt cause a recession? Nusa fiscal policy measures must now also come into play individuals and low-paid precarious employment to serve targeted attention. As much as anyone else where medical care and sick. Leave our costly. This can force people to go to work. Even if they're still carrying the virus justice in one thousand nine hundred eighteen people are polluted. Urban areas are likely to be particularly at risk. These populations that are already more susceptible to respiratory illness due to environmental factors. This would be like are homeless cities special measures help. These groups must be considered.
Reccession vs Depression
"On. Welcome to kiss myths and mystery. I'm your host kid. Chrome the economic impact of the corona virus on the. Us economy is almost as big a topic as a consequence of the virus on this population. Unfortunately there is enough disinformation to make either topic fusing in today's podcast. GonNa lay out some numbers and make clear the difference between a recession and depression to understand the immensity of each. We need to look at these numbers. I the population of the United States is approximately three hundred. Twenty nine million. The thirty point two million small businesses in the US comprise about ninety eight percent of all businesses. Fifteen million are self employed and of that number about nine million are unincorporated total employed in the US as of this podcast. Roughly one hundred fifty eight million. A recession is a gradual decline of the economy that occurs over at least six months. Nineteen seventy four. The Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor Statistics gave a more in-depth dictionary definition. This included that there needed to be a one point. Five percent decline in Gross National Product or the total value of all goods and services produced in a given year plus for investment and unemployment needed to reach six percent or higher on the other hand. A depression is an extended. Recession are serious decline in the economy that lasts for a year or more for depression to be in effect. Unemployment rates need to raise to twenty percent or above and there needs to be a significant decline in the gross domestic product or GDP and there are other smaller factors that we will take into consideration at this time is short. A recession is simply a short term economic trough but a depression is a recession on steroids since eighteen fifty four the United States has experienced thirty three recessions but only one depression so depression is a long term recession with twenty percent or above unemployment. Now politicians batted around the number of unemployed like a ping pong ball. Some people think that to get these figures on employment. The government uses the number of people collecting unemployment insurance referred to as you I these benefits under state or federal government programs but some people are still jobless when their benefits run out and many more not eligible all or delay or never apply for benefits so quite clearly you or unemployment. Insurance information cannot be used as a source for complete information on the number of unemployed with shelter in place mandate many states as well as the closing all businesses except grocery stores and pharmacies due to the Corps Corona virus. You can be assured that the number of unemployed is going to soar no doubt the both twenty percent recession or depression. It would seem that with a higher number of unemployed that the economy would be affected consequently in decline and that would leave the deciding factor of recession or depression determined by the GDP which has gone up for the past three years and how long it takes for the unemployed to become employed to the tune of one hundred fifty eight million once again. How our economy will rebound is as unpredictable as a final impact of the corona virus on the population
"Welcome kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host kid crumb. Today we live in a world of doublespeak gas lighting alternative facts. And this begs the question. How do you find the truth? Well deductive reasoning critical thinking. And fact checking out bear with me as I start off an illustration of all of this with the nursery rhyme ring around the rosie pocket full of posies ashes ashes. We all fall down. The word dark comes to mind when you think about it. The first three words ring around the Rosie refers to the sign of infection during the black plague. It was a bright green or yellow ring around a raised. Rats watch the next words pocket full of posies refers to the smell of the infected and how children fill their pockets with flowers to cover the smell. Finally the last words ashes ashes we all fall down. This refers to how the infected eventually drop dead and they were burned to keep the plague from spreading lol talk about dark and it would be if that were the true meaning of this nursery rhyme. But it's not fact. Check ring around. The Rosie is simply a nursery rhyme of undefined origin and no specific meaning and someone long after the fact concocted and invented explanation for its creation. The black plague was a disease. We call Vanek plague and it spread by bacillus usually carried by rodents and transmitted to humans by fleas. The played I hit Western Europe in Thirteen. Forty seven and by thirteen fifty. It had killed nearly a third of the European population. Although some of the details of the plague offered in this strange ring around the rosie poem explanation are reasonably accurate. Sneezing one of the symptoms of a form of pled for example and some people did use flowers incense and perfume oils to try and ward off the scent of the disease the notion that we were behind the creation of this nursery rhyme is extremely implausible for a number of reasons although foot glorious have been collecting and setting down in print. Bits of oral tradition such as Rhymes and fairy tales for hundreds of years. The earliest print appearance of ring around the Rosie did not occur until the publication of Kate. Greenaway's mother goose or the old nursery rhymes in eighteen. Eighty one for the plug explanation of ring around the Rosie to beat true. We have to believe that shoulder were reciting this nursery rhyme continuously for over five centuries yet not one person in that five hundred year span founded popular enough to merit writing down how anyone could credibly assert a rhyme which didn't appear in print until eighteen eighty one actually began in thirteen. Forty seven is a mystery if the rhyme were really this whole than ring around the Rosie antedates chaucer's Canterbury Tales and therefore we would have examples of this rhyme in middle English as well as modern English forms. We're talking about deductive reasoning gear ring around. The Rosie has many different variant forms which admit some of the plague references or clearly how nothing whatsoever to do with death or sees my point and taking a closer look at this nursery. Rhyme is to point out that something that appears to mean. One thing may actually mean something else entirely. Well that's good to know but how is it determined what is true and what is not one of the things. Aside from critical thinking. Reasonable deduction is back. Check in a world of alternative facts. It's important to look and listen with a critical eye on ear. And if that fails fact check this begs an example more relevant than a nursery. Rhyme could the twenty twenty. Us presidential election postponed. There's your question what's true. The date of the. Us presidential election could theoretically be postponed with the approval of Congress and the president. How ever such a postponement would be extremely difficult to achieve in time for the twenty twenty presidential election and not provide much leeway for voters. Now he can see not all answers are straightforward. But a good fact checker will spell

'cause that's the network the network the D. vm production. And all right. Okay here we go. This is another listener mail. Ghostly society facebook group so if you haven't joined this is the time just ghostly sleep society on facebook and I join you know. It's it's a lot of fun there. I mean seriously I enjoy seeing other people like interact on these same topics and use the same critical thinking that we've been going over. Yes 'cause they'll be like. Hey this is something happened to me. What do you guys think? And then people kind of debate it. It's well I'm I'm especially proud of the moments when people are like you know I used to. Just be a straight up believer in all this but now I question it and I usually still come up to be a believer. I take time to think about it. And that is that makes me proud me too me too. Yeah all right so. This is one of our top listeners. Whitney top listeners. She is our top is awesome. She is awesome and she's always posting and got a lot of fun stuff So she says Pat You will probably have a field day with this my friend and roommate by the way she did get permission from the room. That's it took us a few weeks before we read this Who her roommate goes by the name of Rabbit Rabbit has been an actual rabbit or is it no named rap person named nicknamed rabbit okay. I'm fine with that. All right has been seeing and hearing things his entire life. He has many stories but one in particular still ongoing from when he was a child. He believes that he's being plagued by Mitch mischievous spirit that he is named Bob. Oh I am too. Yeah by Bob Anderson from Bob after dark spirit that just plagues you keep putting these micro-climate ideas in my head. Yeah Over the years Bob is made his presence known to all of us. Rabbit claims he frequently moves things to a place where they should not be for. Example rabbit used to smoke an old fashioned tobacco pipe. He always placed in his bedside drawer and in his nightstand. Before going to sleep one morning he woke up and it was no longer there. Robert searched Oliver's room but he could not find it anywhere. I needed to go into rabbits room to borrow a cord to charge my phone as my court shorten it and I would not be able to get to the store until much later I went nowadays. You can't get to the store at all well though this was. Yeah you can tell. It's dated story. That was when we could go in Papua stores. I went searching for because they normally do not go into his room. And have no idea where you normally puts things. Even though he's meticulous about where things are put so he can find them quickly when he wakes up. That sounds like you pat. I couldn't find it in any of the spots. I thought were obvious so I looked in the drawer under the foot of his bed. There was his pipe when he got home. I told him I found the pipe. And where where? And he just looked at me confused. He never uses that drawer for anything in his door. Stays locked due to pass issues with things going missing from his room so no one besides him myself and my husband could have moved it and none of us did. Bob also seems to get frustrated with my husband. My hubby is firmly on the Hashtag schemes. Team skeptic side. Oh I like her husband. This is despite the fact that Bob throws things that John from time to time. Especially if we've been talking about him recently and John has voiced his opinion that he does not believe Bob exists normally a short Shortwhile after this declaration something that John is place down near himself will fall to the floor. Once it was a plate of Spaghetti that he had put at the back of the wide of a wide dresser that was against the wall. Everyone in the room was more than arm's length away and it fell off in front of the dresser face down. We know it didn't just fall off the edge because the dresser was much wider than the plate also the Renault animals in the room at the time because we were eating in the door was closed to keep them out. Wow sounds very mischievous yeah. Poltergeists definitely in the Bob thing really rings true to me. Yeah I think Bob you know since his psychic powers to like knock play.

Introducing SUPERNATURAL WITH ASHLEY FLOWERS
"By the time police got the call about the bodies Invitation Hill. It was already starting to get dark. The Hill is surrounded by thick forest and brush so for everyone's safety. They decided to hold off until morning. Of course the press didn't take the same precautions when officers finally did arrive on the morning of August. Twenty first nineteen sixty six vin. Tame Hill was already swarming with reporters. The even snapped a few photos before the bodies were carried away unfortunately all the original sources are in Portuguese and more than fifty years later. It's hard to track them all down but some of them were summarized in English in the flying saucer review which despite the name was fairly credible journal in the sixties based on those articles. Here's what we know about. The police investigation. The only easy part of this case was identifying the victims thirty two year old men. Well Pereira de Cruz and thirty four year old. Miguel Giuseppe Viana. Both men were electronics. Technicians from the town called compost dose. Go to causes. Which is about one hundred and seventy five miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro. Both of them were happily married. Well respected in the community and led pretty normal. Unassuming lives according to their families. Miguel and Manuel had left town. On the morning of Wednesday August Seventeenth nineteen sixty six three days before their bodies were found. They said they were heading to Sao Paulo to buy some electronics equipment. Along with a used car. They've been looking at. They took some money with them somewhere. Between two and three million Cruzeiros the conversion rate is a little hard to calculate. But that's somewhere worth like a few thousand. Us dollars today at about nine am. Miguel and Manuel headed out to the bus station accompanied by a friend named L. CEO Gomez. Elsa wanted to go into the bus station. See them off but the other two men insisted that he just drop them off outside. Elsia didn't understand what the big deal was but he didn't think too much of it. He watched Miguel men walk into the bus depot and then he went back home. That was the last time he ever saw his two friends alive now. Even with the minimal evidence police had at this point. There were a few things about this story. That didn't add up. When the bodies were found the only had a combined one hundred sixty one thousand Cruzeiro on them. The rest of the two three million is unaccounted for still to this day. And of course they didn't go to Sao Paulo like they told everyone else. They went to a town called NITA. Roy which is a suburb of Rio de Janeiro. Which is a good couple hundred miles away. The investigators went back to Nita. Roy Hoping to find some answers there but once they piece together the rest of August seventeenth nineteen sixty six. All they had were more questions. Miguel and men wells bus would have arrived in Nita Roy at around two or two thirty that afternoon their first stop was an electronic store. They'd been to that store before so we can assume it carried some kind of equipment that wasn't sold in their own town but for some reason they left the store without buying anything and they didn't even talk to the sales clerk there now. Maybe the store was out of whatever they were looking for. But the taken a five hour bus ride to get there. Why on Earth wouldn't they at least check with the clerk? Before leaving either way after they lead the electronic store it starts to rain so they stop into a clothing store nearby and buy a pair of matching raincoats again. This doesn't raise any red flags on its own. But what is weird? The clerk said that they left in such a rush that they didn't even bother to put on the coats before running out into the rain. The coach that they just bought now. You might assume that the big appointment that they were rushing to was with the owner of that used car that they were looking to buy. But you'd be wrong. They didn't buy any car during the trip so if they weren't buying electronics and they weren't buying a car. What were they doing there? Oddly the next time may surface is at a bar in the same neighborhood as the clothing store and when they get to the bar. They're still very anxious about the time. Miguel goes to the counter and orders a bottle of mineral water according to the bartender. He's acting very like nervous and impatient and while he's ordering he keeps glancing over at the clock after paying for the water. Miguel keeps the receipt and this might not seem like a big clue but Brazil has a recycling policy where you could return empty bottles for a deposit. So whatever or whoever they're waiting for. Miguel assumes won't take too long and he'll have time to return the bottle before heading home that evening no one saw Miguel. Well leave the bar so we don't know if they met someone there or they left alone but at five PM. They're seen at the foot of ENTAME Hill. Which is just outside town. They pull up in a jeep driven by someone with blonde hair. There were two other men in the car as well but the witness couldn't see them clearly. Whoever these three men were they were the last people to see Miguel and well alive. So by this point police had mapped out all of their movements from leaving home in the morning to arriving at the hill that night but none of it offered any clues about what actually happened next. We already mentioned a few the strange details at the scene of the deaths. But if we take a closer look it's even more baffling. Let's start off with what they didn't have the money that they brought with them. The most obvious possibility is that this was a robbery gone wrong but staging a scene like this would have taken a lot of time and effort for not a ton of money and they also left some behind also. There were no injuries on either of the bodies. No CUTS NO BRUISES. No Burns no sign of violence at all. When the corner didn't autopsy there were no internal damages either and strangely. Despite sitting out in the open for three days on a hill that's swarming with wildlife. The bodies were totally untouched by animals. No one can really say what that means but it kind of seems like there was something unnatural about the death if even the vultures didn't WanNa touch them if this wasn't a murder the next possibility was suicide but this theory sort of falls apart too because Miguel still had the empty water bottle and the receipt. If he knew he was going to die. Why go through the trouble of saving that receipt beyond that police find three pages of handwritten notes? That definitely didn't suggest a suicide pact. The first page has a a list of electronics parts. Numbers along with some Algebra work. The equation uses Ohm's law which is E. equals. I are which is used to calculate the strength of an electrical current now. The two men were electronics technicians. After all so everyone assumes these are just notes for a work project now. The next page though is more of an enigma translated from Portuguese. It says quote Sunday one tablet after the meal. Monday one tablet in the morning on an empty stomach. Tuesday one tablet after the meal Wednesday one tablet before bedtime and quote. Obviously this is talking about some kind of prescription. But as far as anyone knows neither Miguel or amend well were sick now. The last dose that Wednesday before bedtime dose would have been taken right before they died but due to decomposition the corner couldn't get useful out of the toxicology report so we still don't know what was in those mysterious tablets and this was a little hard for me to understand because just a second ago I know. He said the bodies kind of untouched by wildlife. I expected them to be in. Good condition. But whatever's going on at the time they either didn't have the technology they didn't have the time and they weren't able to test for it so finally. The third page has another set of instructions. This one said quote sixteen thirty be at the determined location. Eighteen thirty swallow capsules after the effect protect metals week for mask signal end quote. Now the confusion isn't a translation issue. It doesn't make any sense in Portuguese either. It almost seems like the note was kind of scribbled down quickly in some kind of shorthand which probably means someone gave the instructions verbally and someone else wrote them down putting it all together. We can at least gathered that Miguel Aiman. Well weren't the victims of some kind of random attack. They came to the hill for a reason. And that brings us to our last piece of evidence. The lead masks themselves now. You're probably picturing a full mask. That covers your entire face. Almost like what welders wear but these were about the size and shape of sunglasses made out of solid lead. They were apparently homemade and cut. Roughly FROM SCRAP METAL. Lead blocks radiation. So it's often used as a coating protective goggles and facials but these masks were too small to offer any real protection and since they were solid metal. It'd be impossible to see or do anything while wearing them so at first police had no idea what to make of these masks but after some digging it turned out that this wasn't an isolated incident according to flying saucer review. There was another case four years earlier. Where another electronics technician had been found dead on a hill with a lead mask in that previous case the police determined that the man went up to the hill and took some kind of drugs because he was convinced it would allow him to pick up radio and TV signals with his
