Odds & Ends: Government Control of Psychic Abilities -- Selling Haunted Property -- More UFO Sightings on India / China Border
Government Control of Psychic Abilities a Possibility
In a study for psychic experiences published in The Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research, 30 percent of United States participants reported contact with the dead. Sandra Bateman’s new book has been called a “must-read to broaden understanding of a new dimension.” In her book, Standards for Psychic Integration Presents The Journal of Marie Sands Bateman pens a world where government institutions value psychic experiences and want to catalog and control each and every person who has them.
In the book, Marie Sands uses her psychic understanding to help those stuck in a space between dying and death and meticulously journals each experience. Her experiences as a psychic land her in the eyes of the National Security Agency for government use and research through a new agency, the Standards for Psychic Integration. Fueled with experiences that are the author’s own but masked by a beautiful, engaging story of Marie Sands, this is just the tale of one type of psychic ability and experience.
“I turned my own experiences into an entertaining, fictional story to share just one type of experience. I think there are many more stories out there and it’s important to share them," says Bateman.
According to Sandra Bateman, various psychic experiences are more common than most of us believe. She shares just one kind of psychic experience and hopes that others will feel compelled to share their psychic abilities in a potentially new series presented by the fictional government institution, Standards for Psychic Integration (SPI). - Medford, OR (PRWEB) August 19, 2013
Selling Haunted Property
The centre of the 2013 hit horror movie 'The Conjuring' is that haunted and isolated farm house in Rhode Island. The film showed how a completely happy family bought a house where they moved in not knowing the haunted reason why it was sold at a very low price.
Just like the other fans of horror movies like 'The Conjuring,' it can be thrilling to visit a house that is known to be haunted. But what about the hardships of the one selling the house? Do you merely ask for the ghosts to leave or do you get the help of paranormal experts like The Warrens? Above all, will you tell its potential buyers?
Here is an interesting guide on how you can sell a haunted house as creepy as 'The Conjuring' home:
Be Aware of the State Laws. Disclosing certain background details of your home vary according to the state where you're coming from. For example, in Virginia, murders or ghost sightings should only be disclosed to the buyer if it has affected the physical aspects of the house. On the other hand, in California, just how it was shown in the hit series American Horror Story, such defects can be disclosed but only in a the most limited manner possible.
Get Some Space Clear. It won't hurt to bring in some paranormal expert or medium to clear the house of some suspected ghosts. It can help to have someone who can get in touch with the other side so as to start a good vibe around it, at least. Whether or not the potential buyers believe in ghosts or not, it won't be cause such big trouble to get the assistance of some paranormal experts.
Don't Think It Will Always Give The Home A Negative Sale. Remember not all buyers are afraid of ghosts. There are also some out there who are actually interested with such types of houses.
The best advice for potential buyers according to most real estate agents who get to sell haunted houses? Do not hesitate to ask for the truth behind the haunted home and the stories that come with it. And change the address! Unless you want to be disturbed not by the rumoured ghosts but by real fans of such movies like 'The Conjuring.' - IBTimes
New series of UFO sightings on India / China border
Indian Army troops have sighted mysterious unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in the Ladakh sector along the Line of Actual Control with China. On August 4, the UFO was sighted by Army troops in Lagan Khel area in Demchok in Ladakh area in the evening and a report has been sent to the Army headquarters by the local formation, sources said here.
There have been over 100 sightings of UFOs along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the last several months but this sighting has come after some time-gap, they said. Asked about the UFO sightings by the Army troops in Ladakh sector, Defence Minister A K Antony had told Parliament that there is no conclusive proof of sighting of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) over the Sino-Indian border. The UFO sighting on August 4 comes after reports suggested that a top-level science research institute had found that the UFOs were actually planets Jupiter and Venus, which are clearly visible from the high altitude and thin atmosphere terrain of Ladakh.
The reports said that the research institute had found out that the Army troops deployed in the area had mistaken the two planets as UFOs. However, it is not clear whether the conclusion arrived at by the research institute has been accepted by the Army and Government or not. Last year, the 14 Corps, which looks after military deployment along Kargil-Leh and the frontiers with China, had sent reports to the Army Headquarters about the sightings of UFOs by an ITBP unit in Thakung near the Pangong Tso Lake.
Reports suggested that these yellowish spheres appear to lift off from the horizon on the Chinese side and slowly traverse the sky for three to five hours before disappearing. The officials had confirmed that these UFOs were not Chinese drones or satellites. - Indian Express

Dog saves cat by donating blood
A dog might be man's best friend, but a Tauranga Labrador has made a bigger sacrifice for the arch enemy.
Macy the dog saved the life of Rory the cat by donating blood. He's perfect now, but three weeks ago Rory urgently needed blood after eating rat poison.
"He was dying. We didn't have time for the cat blood to arrive or be matched," says Rory's owner, Kim Edwards.
It was Friday night and no labs were open to check his blood type, let alone get supplies. So vet Kate Heller sought advice and was told to try dog blood.
"I hadn't heard about it or read about it. It's not in any textbook," says Ms Heller.
Rory needed a donor fast. So Ms Edwards thought fast and phoned a friend in her book club.
"[I had] never heard of anything like that before. I thought she was joking," says Macy's owner, Michelle Whitemore.
But Rory desperately needed the 18-month-old Labrador. Macy was rushed to the vet where she donated 120ml of blood, and within an hour Rory the cat was saved.
"It was one of those situations that it was a do-or-die. So, he would have died if we did nothing," says Ms Heller.
It may sound wacky, but it's science. Cats don't have antibodies that reject dogs' blood, so a transfusion may buy enough time for the cat to regenerate its own red blood cells. But only one transfusion can be done because a second dose of dog blood will be the death of the cat.
"He is not out fetching the newspaper or peeing on power poles or barking yet! He is just the normal cat that we have – playful, friendly," says Ms Edwards. - 3News
