Daily 2 Cents: Dugway...the New Area 51? -- India Heatwave Kills 800, Literally Melts Roads -- 5-Year Abduction Ordeal

Dugway...the New Area 51?

(NOTE: I intend on writing about this in the new future...but, there is mounting evidence that the Dugway Proving Ground in Utah is now the top UFO research facility for the U.S. Military. The following MUFON CMS report offers some recent information. Lon)

Dugway, UT - 2/5/2015: We own a truck company and we were deleting to Dugway military base. First we had to get clearance than we wait about an hour for a military escort. Once through the check points we started through the base into the desert first. All the buildings were empty as were all further checkpoints. As we approach the desert a military drone followed us as we went deeper into the desert. There were roads that ended into mountain side and a giant cement staircase in the middle of the desert with no cement or asphalt around like a landing pad. After driving for about 45 mins or so were are instructed to unload the container we were carrying in the middle of the desert. We were escorted back to the entrance. A few days later I was rushed to the hospital in Texas where I was treated for kidney failure. About a week or so later they had no reason why I had the failure except maybe I was born with it, although for 30+ years I've had no problems until now. - MUFON CMS


India heatwave kills 800 as capital's roads melt

At least 800 people have died in a major heatwave that has swept across India, melting roads in New Delhi as temperatures neared 50 degrees Celsius (122 Fahrenheit).

India's Meteorological Department said it had issued heat warnings to several states where temperatures were forecast to top 45 degrees Celsius over the next few days.

"As of now, we don't predict any respite from the extreme heatwave for the next few days," said spokesman B. P. Yadav.

Hundreds of people -- mainly from the poorest sections of society -- die at the height of summer every year across the country, while tens of thousands suffer power cuts from an overburdened electricity grid.

Streets were deserted in Hyderabad, capital of the worst-hit state of Andhra Pradesh in southern India where 551 people have died in the last week.

"The state government has taken up education programmes through television and other media to tell people not to venture into the outside without a cap, to drink water and other measures," said P. Tulsi Rani, special commissioner for disaster management in the state.

"We have also requested NGOs and government organisations to open up drinking water camps so that water will be readily available for all the people in the towns."

Hyderabad street vendor P. Gangamma said the heat was making her head pound, but she had no choice but to stay outside.

"For the past three days hot wind has been coming in," said the 65-year-old, who sells cigarettes on a busy intersection.

"I am a diabetes patient, but I have no husband and no sons, so I have to stay here and keep shop."

- 'Bad business' -

Large parts of India, including the capital New Delhi, have endured days of sweltering heat, prompting fears of power cuts as energy-guzzling air conditioners work overtime.

The Hindustan Times daily said the maximum temperature in the capital hit a two-year high of 45.5 degrees Celsius on Monday -- five degrees higher than the seasonal average.

The paper carried a front-page photo of a main road in the city melting in the heat, with the white pedestrian crossing stripes curling and spreading into the black asphalt.

"It's baking hot out here -- our outing has turned into a nightmare," said Meena Sheshadri, a 37-year-old tourist from the western city of Pune who was visiting Delhi's India Gate monument with her children.

"My throat is parched, even though I've been constantly sipping water."

Delhi street food vendor Hari Om said business was slow, with few people venturing out in the furnace-like conditions.

"All the food is getting spoilt even though I prepared it fresh in the morning. It's bad business but what to do," he said.

"People are not coming out and they also don't feel like eating. All they want is to sip cold water all day."

In Telangana state, which borders Andhra Pradesh in the south, 231 people have died in the last week as temperatures hit 48 degrees Celsius over the weekend.

In the western state of Orissa 11 people were confirmed to have died from the heat.

Another 13 people have died in the eastern state of West Bengal, where unions urged drivers in the city of Kolkata to stay off the roads during the day.

India's power industry has long struggled to meet rapidly rising demand in Asia's third largest economy, with poorly maintained transmission lines and overloaded grids.

The Hindustan Times warned that some of the hot, dry conditions could plunge the worst-affected states into drought before monsoon rains arrive.

The monsoon is forecast to hit the southern state of Kerala towards the end of this month before sweeping across the country, but it will be weeks before the rains reach the arid northern plains. - India heatwave kills 800 as capital's roads melt


5-Year Abduction Ordeal

Fort Worth, TX - I do not have all the dates but over a 5 year period I was abducted probably 10 times. I would be sound asleep and all of a sudden would hear whispering then could not move my body. Then about 2 hours later I would wake up and would feel like a truck had run over me. Most of the times there were puncture marks on me and lot of time they were centered around my navel for some reason. For days I would feel like all my energy had been drained from me and of course I could not sleep because I was scared to death. One really scary time I heard the whispering and managed to turn over in my bed before I was paralyzed. There were approximately 5-6 alien creatures looking at me. They were talking to each other but their mouths were not moving but I could understand what they were saying. They were upset that I had seen them. They were very small-about the size of a 9-10 year old child. I said to them "please not again" and then I was out for 2 hours. Once I was about 52 years old the abductions stopped and have not happened again but I am still scared. I have NEVER told anyone this story for fear they would put me in the funny farm but I KNOW this happened to me. - MUFON CMS


Top 5 Reportedly Haunted Locations Ghost Hunters Must Visit

(Geez...they really do need to start promoting different haunted locations. We were investigating these places 30 years ago! Lon)

One of the biggest crazes in the travel industry today is dark tourism, and for those who love the idea of hunting for ghosts on your vacation, there are a plethora of reportedly haunted locations across the United States you must visit.

From a haunted prison like Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia to an abandoned mental institution like the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in West Virginia, there are many places paranormal investigators can try to come in contact with spirits.

Here are the five reportedly haunted locations that have reached near-mythic status for the ways they go bump in the night:

1. Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Located in Philadelphia, Eastern State Penitentiary is one of the oldest remaining prisons in the United States, and one of the most notoriously haunted locations. While a terrifying haunted house exhibit takes over a portion of the building during Halloween, the stories of legitimate hauntings have been around for years.

If there was ever a place for ghost activity, it would be Eastern State Penitentiary. During the building’s 142 years of service as an active prison, 1,200 inmates died overall, with more than 50 inmates killing themselves and over a dozen murdered by other inmates.

For those looking for proof, major ghost-hunting shows like Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventures" and SyFy's "Ghost Hunters" have investigated the building and found some exciting evidence indicating the buildings are haunted.

Tickets for a full tour of the building and the surrounding grounds are only $14. With the amount of negative energy inside the historic walls of the prison and the deteriorating surroundings, Eastern State Penitentiary is a legitimately scary location.

2. Pennhurst State School and Hospital in Spring City, Pennsylvania

Pennhurst State School and Hospital is one of the most controversial buildings in the United States. Opened as an institution for mentally and physically disabled people, the conditions inside the building were deplorable. It was eventually shut down in 1987.

The building tucked into the woods of Pennsylvania doesn’t look much different than any other abandoned buildings across America, but the acts of abuse and mistreatment that eventually had the building shut down stained the area.

Just as Eastern State Penitentiary was investigated by Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventures" and SyFy's "Ghost Hunters," Pennhurst was as well. Both of the most recognizable ghost hunting teams in the country found impressive evidence before determining several of the buildings in the complex were haunted.

Add in the fact that the building has one of the world’s top-ranked haunted houses in a main building, and the decaying walls of the controversial facility make it one of the top reportedly haunted locations.

3. Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky

Originally built as a place to house all of the victims suffering from a serious outbreak of tuberculosis, estimates as to how many died at Waverly Hills Sanatorium vary, but a safe estimate from researchers hovers around 8,000.

The vast number of deaths in such a short time is said to have left a negative imprint on the property, and ghost investigation teams who have gone through the building all agree that the facility provides evidence of paranormal activity.

For those who want to experience the building on their own, the owners of the Waverly Hills Sanatorium offer guided tours during the day or at night for those looking to experience some of the spirits reportedly roaming the halls.

Add in the fact that investigators can pay $100 per person to investigate the buildings unsupervised, and the amateur ghost hunters should be making their way to Louisville, Kentucky, for an authentic experience.

4. Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, West Virginia

After first opening in 1864, the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum underwent many alterations before being shut down due to changes in treatments of patients. The result has been a slew of paranormal reports from the building.

With thousands of patients possibly being mistreated at the facility over the years and hundreds of recorded deaths, the conditions are ideal for activity. Guest and investigators have reported apparition sightings, unexplainable voices, and unexplainable sounds.
Instead of hiding the truth about the building, the owner of the land has opened the structures to anyone willing to pay for the opportunity to roam the halls. For just $100 (plus tax) per person, investigators can be locked down inside the mental institution for the night.

If Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventures" and SyFy's "Ghost Hunters" both agree that this is one of the most haunted places in the United States, those looking for a little adventure of their own should consider spending the night inside the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum.

5. Fort Mifflin in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

As one of the oldest military forts in the United States, Fort Mifflin in Philadelphia is steeped in history. As a key location in the Revolutionary War, a prison in the civil war and a defense location in World War II, the building has a long history since being built in 1771.

There have been many deaths over the years, but an exact number is not known. Some of the buildings that are reportedly haunted include Casemate 11, the Officers' quarters and the blacksmith shop, where many believe deaths occurred.

Fort Mifflin understands the haunted history of its buildings, and embraces it. For just $45 per person, visitors can go through the grounds with an experienced ghost hunting team and investigate the fort under the cover of darkness.

While you’re in the Philadelphia area investigating Eastern State and Pennhurst, why not stop at Fort Mifflin for a spine-tingling ghost hunting trifecta? - Travel Pulse
