Belle Grove Plantation Ghost Expedition 2016/Caroline Co [Port Conway VA] / Visual ITC From An Ovilus X

http://maryland-paranormal.com   Experimental Instrumental Trans Communication (ITC).  Photo set captured by Maryland Paranormal Research ® at Belle Grove Plantation [Port Conway VA] Jul 09-10 2016.  Audio from an Ovilus-X was used to create co-channel interference on a video signal resulting in an array of colorful images.  

Although some images appear nominally suggestive of human and/or animal forms they should not be considered evidentiary as the experiment was exploratory.  Human tendency to see meaning/patterns in random information can be ascribed to pareidolia and more broadly apophenia.

The Ovilus-X was used in phonetic mode.  During this ghost expedition, the surnames of “Hooker” and “Turner” were mentioned on the device and these belonged to two prominent families that resided in Belle Grove mansion.  The estate also owned 92 slaves during the Turner family tenure.  Haunting legends also include animals, cats and dogs.

Video was captured on a SONY HANDYCAM DCR-SR45 with the signal fed to a SONY TRINITRON Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) TV. Audio output from the Ovilus-X was wired to affect the video input signal going into the CRT TV. Audio output from the CRT TV was amplified using an external speaker. 

This experiment represents a slight departure on the Klaus Schreiber Method for video ITC. In this instance, co-channel interference is caused by utterances from the Ovilus-X and not from video feedback loops. The camera was pointed in the family parlor room and not at the TV.

Breakers sign forward Natasha Dowie - Boston Breakers

The Boston Breakers announced today the signing of England forward Natasha Dowie, pending receipt of her P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC). Per team and league policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Dowie, 28, played two years under current Breakers head coach Matt Beard while Beard managed Liverpool Ladies FC. In her three seasons at Liverpool (2012-2015), Dowie scored 45 goals in 42 games. She was named the FA Players Player of the Year in 2013, the same year she led Liverpool to its first FA Women’s Super League title.

“Tats is an infectious person. Her attitude on the pitch is fantastic, and with her personality, I think she’ll be a great lift to the team, but secondly, she’s a good, honest professional. She works hard, and I think that will rub off on some of the players,” Beard said. “The players won’t get a rest when she’s in training and in games, but the most important thing is, I know if you get her in goal-scoring situations, she’ll score goals. Obviously that’s been our problem all season. We’ve got ourselves in some real good goal-scoring positions, but we just haven’t taken our chances, and at this top level, you get punished if you don’t take them. For me, it’ll be good to work with her again.”

Prior to the signing, the Breakers traded their lowest second-round pick in the 2017 NWSL College Draft to the Western New York Flash for an international roster spot for the remainder of the 2016 season.

“We were surprised she became available when she did. She was a player who we wanted to go after in the offseason. To have her become available now, we had to jump and secure her before she signed a long-term contract elsewhere,” Boston Breakers general manager Lee Billiard said. “To be able to bring her over for the remainder of this year and plan for 2017 with Natasha on board is positive for us.”

Dowie, who had a stint with the Melbourne Victory in the Westfield W-League in Australia in 2015, most recently played four matches for Doncaster Rovers Belles in the FAWSL, scoring one goal. Prior to Doncaster and Liverpool, Dowie saw time with Fulham, Charlton Athletic, and Everton, where she scored the game-winning goal in the 2010 FA Cup Final against Arsenal.

Capped 14 times for England’s Women’s National Team, Dowie made her debut with the Lionesses in November 2009 at the FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers against Turkey. She came on as a sub in a 3-0 victory. She played for England in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers and scored her first international goal on 2013 in a 6-0 win over Belarus.

“I am delighted to be signing for Boston Breakers. I have always had a strong interest in playing abroad, and this was strengthened more so after my short loan spell in the Australian W-League last year,” Dowie said. “I have known Matt Beard since the early days of my career at Charlton FC when I was 17-years-old, and we have cemented our relationship since then with a successful spell together at Liverpool. He knows my game well and is a manager who believes in me, and we work well together. I am looking forward to joining up with former teammates Libby (Stout), Lollo (Louise Schillgard), Whitney (Engen), and Brooke (Elby), and I’m sure having them around will help me to settle in easily. I am hoping I can add something different to the squad, help them improve on their current league position, connect well with the fans, and also looking forward to getting to know the beautiful city of Boston.”

Dowie played with Stout, Schillgard, and Engen at Liverpool and with Elby at Melbourne Victory.

Inside the Cabins #8: Artemis’ Cabin  

“Is an all silver building with silver curtains, similar to the outfit of the Hunters. It also glows silver during night time as if reflecting the moon, but looks like a normal cabin in the day. It is decorated with paintings and carvings of wild animals, mostly the stag. Because Artemis does not have children of her own and the cabin is honorary; however it is used by the Hunters when they visit camp.”

can i get an opinion please? for my next tattoo i want to get 'The Smiths' inside a heart, what do you think? but i also think some of my favourite smiths lyrics would be nice but I'm not sure what

That would be really lovely! If I was getting that tattoo, I think I’d get it in  ITC Benguiat, which is the font The Smiths mostly used (in several variations - on the sleeve of their debut album they used  ITC Benguiat Bold and on the sleeve of Strangeways, Here We Come they used  ITC Benguiat Condensed, for instance).

I’m planning on getting two Smiths tattoos at some point - “don’t forget the songs that made you smile and the songs that made you cry” on my left arm because I don’t want to forget those songs because they changed my life, and “there’s more to life than books, you know (but not much more)” on my right arm because before I went to uni I was very introverted and sheltered and really didn’t feel that there was much more to life and learning otherwise was such a significant part of my time at uni, but with the ‘(but not much more)’ it stays playful and pays homage to how much I love the career I’m building for myself as well as to my favourite band.
