Murders and Disappearances: Can Psychics Solve the Crimes?
"Now like i said i don't think it's outside the realm of possibility that a person can have psychic abilities. I do think that sylvia brown did not have psychic abilities. But i wanted to present you with some cases where psychics got it right. it turns out. Those cases are very hard to find. Even if you pop over to reader's digest dot com which i don't recommend and read articles with headlines like twenty times psychics. Got it right once. You barely scratched the surface on those cases. You find out. It's a little more complicated. It's super hard to get good. Statistics on police use psychics and investigations. Police don't really like to talk about how much they rely on psychics and in some cases get older. The information on them changes drastically if you read five articles about a case from fifty years ago. Each written in subsequent decade. You'll find the reporting goes from police. Credit so-and-so psychic for pointing them in the right direction to initially police admitted to using a psychic helped but later retracted the statement to eventually police adamantly deny using psychic and the case and claim that any information a psychic may have given was patently wrong. So it's a little hard to keep track of but according to an article in forbes. The cia conducted a study and found that eight out of eleven police officers. Polled said. they used psychics to help them solve crimes. Eight out of eleven. Oddly enough. I couldn't gain access to the cia report even though it was supposed to be declassified the link was broken i think someone high up read the report and was like fuck. Now burn that shit but eight out of eleven is a lot. I don't even think eight out of eleven people believe in psychics. Generally eight out of eleven even if those numbers are inflated and it's more like five out of eleven. Don't you think there must be something we don't know and look there could be many reasons caught. Might turn to a psychic desperation. Laziness appeasing distraught loved ones and even if afterward they try to back pedal and make it. Look like the psychic wasn't helpful. It does make you wonder why. So many police officers who aren't generally known for their hippy. Dippy reported using psychics to help them solve cases.
"sylvia" Discussed on Sparkle Stories Podcast
"Sylvia wondered what the chief could be talking about. What would be considered unusual. Did they have strange pets. Were there funny. pictures on. The walls was their food all over the place but as soon as they went into the main room. She didn't see anything unusual. There was a table. There were chairs and there was the kitchen. Look around chief said what do you see that you don't have in your home. Everyone got to walk around. The boys wondered if maybe it was the size of the table. Or maybe the little bedrooms but the chief said. What do you see next to the beds. Then sylvia saw what the chief was talking about at. The foot of one of the beds was a set of boots with clothes squished. Down around the tops. The boots and it was as if someone quickly took their clothes off and didn't bother to put them away where firefighters messy. she wondered. She pointed to the clothes and the chief smiled and said exactly. You see firefighters. Need to get to where they're needed fast. So they need to get into their gear as quick as they. Can they start to get dressed right here in the bedrooms and then they continue to get dressed down this hallway here. The chief lead them down a whole way to another open space and since this is an older station you can see. We still have a fire pole and it really is faster than stairs. Is everyone's attention. The chief was pointing to a poll that went through a hole in the floor. This poll goes straight to the trucks. Where the firefighters will get their jackets and their helmets and then off they go. The group took a moment to imagine this. Sylvia was a little confused. Wouldn't they trip on their clothes if they dressed as they went down the hallway. And how do they go down the poll. That seemed really tricky. The chief seemed to sense this and he smiled. Would you like to see.

Wet Notes for 2-28-21
"This is wet notes on scuba shaq radio for sunday february twenty eighth two thousand and twenty one. Well i up today. I'm going to do an update on dry suit talq now ever since i've owned a dry suit i've been using those little pouches of talk to dust my wrist seals and neck seals. And that makes it easier to put on especially if it gets a little humid. Well we used to get these little pouches from magnet who then became gear aid when we could no longer get them from juried. We switched to getting them from diving unlimited international or dui. Recently we ran low on these talca pouches. Wanted to order some more. But do you. I stopped producing those talk pouches. I guess i'm guessing near some concern around. The safety of talk i noticed has been in news over recent years. So donna reached out to peak from dui and he suggested cornstarch to dust are seals. Make sure you do it every time now. That sounds a little strange to me. But it looks like people are using it in place of the talq. We'll give it a try. And i'll let you know how goes cornstarch. It's not just for cooking next up. Is things start opening up and we travel outside the country. We're going to need to get tested for in nineteen before we can come back well. Resorts are out there. And they're starting to accommodate their customers and making it easier to get tested. So for example. I just saw where enroll roett to resorts. The turquoise bay dive resort and the mayan princess beach dive resort are offering onsite cova testing on thursdays and fridays. And then what happens. Is you'll get electronic. Results are available in three hours. And then you'll have a hard copy the next day now you still have to pay for it in a costs about fifty bucks. Then i also check the cocoa view site down there and roett tan and it looks like they are also offering onsite testing but their prices coming in at eighty five dollars so it looks like if you're going to travel to row attend you'll find it easier to get tested for corona virus and get back home as long as you test negative but i think more and more of these dive operators out there are going to provide that cova testing or options for people so that you can go travel and then make it easier for you to get back home. Also last i think a couple of weeks ago. The president of the united states signed executive order. One three nine eight and with that executive order it mandated. That masks are to be worn on all public maritime vessels including ferries. What does that mean for dive boats. Well deana did. Some research and found out that this mandate includes commercial vessels used for dive charters and dive related activities. You'll need to be masked up upon boarding disembarking and the duration of travel. Obviously this can only apply to us. Operators i think this makes sense and i'm sure common sense will prevail given our unique circumstances when we go diving way back in the beginning of two thousand twenty i did a segment on dive travel insurance then in mid two thousand and twenty. I noticed the divers alert network. Dan their travel insurance was not available on their website is back now. However there was a short article on dive newswire that indicated that there are qualified cove in nineteen related cancellation and interruptions covered. There's a lot of detail on their website. You can read through. Essentially they cover prepaid travel arrangements. If you your host at your destination you traveling companion or family member test positive for covid. Nineteen there's also levels of coverage while traveling but you need to do your research. The good news however is that the dan travel insurance is back and it looks like they are helping to try and address the corona virus issues. It's always a good day when i go out to the mailbox and that the latest issue of the journal of diving history has arrived. That happened earlier this week. The cover of the first quarter two thousand twenty one magazine features to five women who made up the team of tech tight to mission six dash fifty. Which was america's first off female saturation team. The five women included peggy lucas. An hurley hotline renata lynch true elena schmidt and sylvia earle the journal of diving history. Formerly historical. diver magazine is the official magazine of the historical diving society. Usa and is part of your membership. I can't wait to dive into all the articles i saw. The other day that there's been a an oil spill off the coast of israel and lebanon and it's impacting over one hundred miles of coastline. Now what's a little disconcerting about this is that they don't know where this is coming from this washing up on the beaches. It's the seems like there's some sort of gag order on the release of information. I'm just not sure why there was. Also a thin whale washed up on the beach apparently with oil in its loans. They say this is undoing. Much of the progress made over the last thirty years. Let's hope they figure out where this is coming from or where it came from. And if they're able to minimize the impacts and finally here's some really big news in the scuba industry especially related to scuba tanks. Luxembourg is getting out of the aluminum tank business on february twenty third. Luxor held their fourth quarter and full year. Two thousand and twenty analysts call and that's where they announced their divestiture of their aluminum product lines now. The rationale according to their press release is that they wanted to focus on high performance magnesium alloys zirconium catalysts and high pressure composite cylinders. Guess to profit margin. Just wasn't there on the aluminum tanks. They plan on selling those two aluminum forming operations in the united states and one in the in the uk. But we don't know who they're going to sell it to just yet more to come on. This is it as it. Unfolds now luxembourg. They produced a lot of tanks.

"Could not enter art academies in Italy, the cradle of Renaissance masters, no matter how talented Names of a few female artists of that time, and some from the centuries that followed, have often been lost in the mists of history. A Zen prior Sylvia Poggioli reports. There's an effort to bring their names and their work into the light. In this video tour of Florence is famed you Fitzy Museum travel writer Rick Steves list. Some of the highlights the United of Inches enunciation is exquisite. Michelangelo's holy family shows he could do more than carved statues. And Raphael in 2009, a nonprofit group was founded in Florence to see who's missing. I started going into the deposits and the museum storage is and addicts and Checking what was actually there.

That's Linda Fanconi, an American writer who helped found a W a advancing women artists. The group has identified some 2000 artworks by women in museum basements and damp churches and finance The restoration of 70 works. Fanconi describes the challenges women artists faced in the Renaissance. Women didn't have citizenship. They couldn't produce art as a profession. They couldn't study anatomy no in the nude figures, for example, because it just wasn't considered appropriate. The inability to study in the same in the same forum as male artists is very significant. A major discovery was a huge canvas 21 ft. Long off 13 life sized men. The only known last supper painted by a woman. She's the 16th century Dominican nun, Clumpy Llanelli who worked inside a convent. Florence has a long last supper tradition.

When the coroner's inquest was conducted it ruled that the fire had been caused by faulty wiring. But this didn't make any sense. Because jenny and george knew for a fact that the lights had been working that night so it seemed impossible that an electrical problem had sparked the blaze. They were also confused by the latter that had gone missing on the night of the fire. They could have used it to rescue the children trapped upstairs. If they'd been able to locate it later. Someone found a ladder. Sixty five feet away from the house in a ditch. The solders never learned why it was moved. Or who had done it without the latter georgia and his sons had tried to use their to coal trucks to climb into the house and rescued the trap children. But lo and behold neither truck would start even though both had been working perfectly the day before and that wasn't all a witness claimed that he saw a man taking a block and tackle from the scene of the fire for context. This is a system of hooks and ropes. That can be used to remove an engine from a car. The thief was later found to be a local man named lonnie johnson as it turned out stealing the block and tackle wasn't the only crime. Lonnie johnson committed that night. Lonnie also admitted to cutting the sada's phone line just thirty minutes before the blaze broke out at this point. It wasn't much of a stretch for jenny. And george to believe that someone may be lonnie had intentionally burned down their house after all lonnie was skulking around their property committing vandalism and theft if he was capable of that arson didn't seem like too far a leap. The problem was they couldn't prove anything. Sure lonnie confessed that he wanted to rob the house but that didn't mean he'd lit the flames. The sada's couldn't even prove the fire had been set on purpose but tips kept pouring in and they seemingly confirmed george. Jenny suspicions for instance. A bus driver came forward saying he driven past a solder home late on christmas eve. He claimed that as he went by he saw someone throwing quote balls of fire onto the roof. If the bus driver was to be believed someone had intentionally set the solder house. Flame perhaps using a molotov cocktail or another explosive. If true this meant that their children hadn't died in a tragic accident they'd been murdered. The surviving solders were still grappling with the possibilities. When they returned to the site turned memorial a few months later it a somber moment for the family a chance to grieve and remember the source of their pain but two year old baby. Sylvia was too young to understand what had happened or why her older siblings had disappeared. Blissfully unaware she played in the yard until she found something that was decidedly. Not a toy it was in olive. Green hard cylindrical rubber object after examining it george determined it was an explosive device and napalm pineapple bomb to be exact if it was indeed an explosive that would explain the balls of fire. The bus driver had seen being thrown onto the roof and it was consistent with the loud thump and rolling. Sound that jenny up in the middle of the night in short lonnie johnson's suspicious behavior. The napalm bomb and the lack of human remains made the saunders. Sure of two things one. The fire was set intentionally and two. They weren't getting the full story about their missing five children. Jenny conducted a series of informal experiments in her wood-burning stove hoping to understand why her sons and daughters had turned to ash all of her tests left bones behind which gave her an odd sense of hope. It meant that her children couldn't have died in the fire. They might still be alive somewhere but with the stakes so high she couldn't only rely on her own amateur investigation. She took things a bit farther to confirm her suspicions. Jenny consulted with an employee at a crematorium after all who would know better

Dual Sleep And Why It's Good For You
"Already instead of start things off we have follow up something that we said we would get back to you last time which I feel like every time we do that we We don't always get back to it, but we're getting back to it. So yeah, emily had asked us about her shift work weight loss intermittent fasting 's like crazy sleep schedule where she would sleep from ten PM to two. AM Do a paper out from two to four am and then sleep from four to seven am. which was very crazy sleep schedule. We talked about the like fascinating. was. It made Victorian people I think in general just being like the I've just read articles that indicated. That's how they live like medieval times or I don't know that was the natural way to be yes. They would like go to sleep and then like wake up and then go to sleep. So I asked the residence sleep expert Dr Cur- personally who I've had on the melon avalon biohacking podcast linked to that in the show notes the I asked him about it and obviously knew everything about it. He said it was called dual sleep and it occurred roughly twenty two longitudinal above or below the equator and it was because nights were ten to twelve hours at night. And the people would sleep into have the night and they would like wake up in the middle to do activities and hang out while the kids were still asleep. So that's different than like today where we're always sleeping, you know we're lucky for sleeping eight hours and the reason I'm bringing this up is because I think we were contemplating that really oh so maybe this is like a good thing. It's not an ideal situation that situation would be if you were sleeping like if it was like a twelve hour night and you're waking up in the middle so. I think our originally answer still stands about that schedule because they slept from dark too dark, right? That was the difference those people were sleeping from dark too dark and that was too much sleep. Yeah. Probably today would wake up in the middle and then had their second half of the that makes sense but you know what my body is still tuned. To that I swear I could live that way because as soon as it starts to get dark I wanna go to bed I don't care if that's nine thirty at night or five thirty at night. If it's dark I WANNA get into bed I probably should start just doing that. Go to bed wake up in the middle of the night get up. To do some stuff, go back to bed I bet I think that might be my natural. Goes might be my natural way of being I might. Sylvia. Wake in that time when you wake up because you go to bed so like when does it get dark? You would go to bed at like. Five o'clock if it's the wintertime. Okay. See Sleep from like five to like eleven. Oh, and then you wake up and then we could hang out. And then had my second night's sleep and we could both back to same. I swear I would probably feel great doing that we could do the podcast in. I'd have to have an earlier window I'd have to shift it. So, yeah. Coming from Jen's by phase sleep. In my normal sleep and my normally. That's so funny. The APP asleep is huge. I will do a quick plug for Dr Percy's sleep remedy. have an unflavored version of it that is fast friendly, and basically has all of the substrates that your brain naturally needs to fall asleep. So it's not like a pharmaceutical doesn't knock you out or you know affect your sleep quality just makes your brain naturally fall asleep. So being you can get it for ten percent off at sleep remedy dot com slash Melanie Avalon, and the version of it that I have is a capsule. It's a capsule. They have drinks as well. So you can get it for ten percent off at Melanie avalon dot com slash sleep remedy with the coupon, Melanie Avalon and the they do have the drinks while they're coming out with a kids formulation soon so That's pretty exciting but YEP sleep sleep is super important. I feel like I keep reading everywhere that. Out of everything honestly diet lifestyle exercise sleep asleep is lake probably the most important I mean it's hard to say once more important than the other but sleep is so k. like fasting is good for us because it's healing sleep is where are our brains are healing? Right? Not Sleeping it's like eating all the time. As far as like the effects it has yeah

Sylvia who was five and didn't enjoy lifting his much preferred to do the packing and decorating. She ran inside to to get hats and carrots and then added them for the final touch. The daddy was in a bright orange hat with ear flaps and the Mama had a long striped hat and a purple scarf both had carrot noses and sticks arms every morning since Martin and Sylvia would wake to check on their snow people as if to check if they hadn't moved about in the night right sometime.

Let's make a castle with a giant peaking. Its head out from behind said Martin Mama and Daddy got excited about this idea and started planning. They had the tools to build snow blocks for the castle and the giant could just be a huge snowman as they were talking. Sylvia interrupted I want to make a horse Horse with wings a flying horse. It was quiet for a moment and then Martin chimed in nats too to hard for snow the wings would fall off no they wouldn't shouted. Sylvia suddenly very angry now. Sylvia said Daddy. There's no need need to yell. I understand you want to make a flying horse but I have to say I think Martin is right. It's too tricky with snow. I I can see trying it with ice but snow wouldn't hold up. Yes it would. And I'm not making a castle and a giant said Sylvia now furious Sylvia said Mama about to reason with her but Sylvia quickly clapped her hands over her ears and frowned fiercely. Well well okay then said daddy as they finished up their breakfast and started to get ready. Mommy and daddy hustled. Muscled children to get ready so they could meet. The browns downtown Martin was enthusiastic and got himself already waited. Outside with Celia via was still upset was dragging her feet. She couldn't find her hat. Her Mittens or boots and then she was too tired to put any of them on. Daddy started to get frustrated. Sylvia you can get yourself dressed. You dress yourself every morning to go outside and work on your snowman man. So what is the difference about this morning. I'm too tired today. Sylvia said with a tight frown. She was still very angry eventually. They were all in the truck and on their way. Downtown Martin was remembering the snow sculptures from the previous year and said this this year. His best friend. Sasha in her family were helping the Volunteer Fire Department sculpture. He said they were going to make dragon get it dragons. Breathe Fire Fire Department Martin. Mama and daddy laughed. Sylvia was quiet when they arrived downtown downtown they could see it filled with people. It looked like a bigger crowd than last year. People were sipping hot. Cocoa in nibbling on muffins some were shopping and walking the green many were watching the ice sculptors working when they got to the green. They watched a sculptor after working on what looked like the inside of a clock. Sylvia saw one working on a Unicorn and pulled her mama over to look. After a cup of Cocoa Sylvia was feeling better in started to smile at all. The beautiful sculptures then came time to work on the snow sculptures and Silvia's mood changed again. They met the browns and Martin immediately told them about his plan to make a castle missile with giant. The browns thought that would be great fun and they looked for a spot to work. Sylvia folded her arms and refuse is to come. Daddy explained that she wanted to make a flying horse a horse with wings and they had all agreed. It was too difficult. Mr Brown tried to help by making light of it. All horses are hard enough as it is. You want to add wings my words Sylvia. You sure knew how to make a challenge. I'll stick to a castle made of simple bricks. Thank you very much then. He laughed and rubbed her hatted head with his big hand. She did not think it was funny. Turned Away Mama spoke up now Sylvia. There's no need to be rude. Oh it's all right said Mrs Brown kneeling to be Sylvia's level. Mr Brown doesn't mind and besides he didn't really understand any way did he. Sylvia Sylvia looked Mrs Brown with big eyes. Shook her head. The others left to get to work. While Mrs Brown's stayed with Sylvia they watched as Martin told all the adults adults what they should do. Daddy got to work on the giants body while Momma started making snow bricks. Mr Brown helped but mostly he told jokes folks. Mrs Brown giggled. What Mr Brown doesn't understand is what it's like to be the youngest but but I know what it's like? Do you know how many older brothers and sisters I have. Sylvia shook her head seven. Three brothers and four sisters. There are eight of US eight. Can you believe it. Sylvia's eyes were wide as she shook her head again. Mrs Brown continued so growing up. I had mom I had dad and seven others always telling me what to do. I never had say in anything. It was always do this do that. No that's not right do it. This way Sylvia nodded. Martin is always telling me what to do. He says my flying horse won't work. She looked like she was going to cry by. Mrs Brown nodded sympathetically. Is that what you want to build today for the festival Sylvia looked a little embarrassed harassed. We wanted to but the wings will probably fall off. Mrs Brown smiled. Not If they're invisible. Sylvia was confused invisible wings. That's right the theme is supposed is to be magic and invisible wings would certainly qualify for magic. How about you and I make a horse with invisible Wings that way people will be even more surprised when he flies. They both laughed Sylvia. I was feeling much better. Let's make the horse like it's going into the castle for food after it flew through the air. Yes said Mrs Brown. The Castle can be it's barn and giant can be the farmer said Sylvia and they went to work mark while Mama and Mr Brown made the bricks for the castle and Martin Daddy made the giant Sylvia and Mrs Brown made the Horse at first they tried making it stand up but that was too tricky so the horse rested on the ground with its legs folded when they all all finished they stood back and saw how everything fit perfectly. The castle was up two daddies Chin and the big giants head head. Peaked out over the top. Mr Brown gave him big ears and a huge nose. At the base was a door that was open and Sylvia's Sylvia's horse was contentedly lying down looking at the door a different family came by to look at it and the little boy there said. Look the Horse Mama. He's sleeping. Sylvia looked at the boy. It's a magic horse. He has invisible wings. The boys is grew wide as he looked for the wings. Martin put his hand on Sylvia's shoulder. Nice Horse Martin. said that was a good idea. Thanks said Sylvia and brother and sister. Her went hand in hand around the green looking at all the snow sculptures that the town created all welcoming in a magical well new year..
