Paranormal Connections

Technology can be pretty amazing.  Sure, it's a hassle sometimes, especially when we realize that the government feels a need to track all of our calls and activity.  But, on the positive side, it's remarkable to be almost anywhere in the world and connect with people via the phone or Internet. 

Case in point, last week I was on Paranormal Connections with host Christina George.  At the time, I was out on a Cryptozoology expedition with some friends from Crypto Four Corners.  We were in fact at an elevation of 9200 feet and surrounded by storms.  But guess what?  Out of the group, one of us actually had a cell signal so I was able to call into the show. Talk about a Paranormal Connection!

And it was a great show.  Christina, a fellow paranormal investigator, shared her own bizarre experience with some black eyed people and her show has developed a big following.  Thanks to all those who called in to share their accounts and opinions.  It certainly keeps things moving and interesting.

If you missed the show, check out the archive here:

And be sure to tune in to future shows, Christina has some great guests lined up.

In fact, if you're interested in cryptids, keep watch, I'll be returning to Christina's show for a future episode along with my friend JC Johnson.  Well be discussing cryptids of the four corners.

In Memory of Jesse Marcel JR.

Jesse Marcel Jr. has passed away.  The best possible tribute is to remember his willingness to speak out on Roswell, the UFO question and his father's involvement with the most well know UFO incident in history.

Costa Rica Ends Animal Captivity


In a bold move, the government of Costa Rica has announced its intention to close its zoos.  Environmental Minister, Rene Castro released an official statement:

“We are getting rid of the cages and reinforcing the idea of interacting with biodiversity in botanical parks in a natural way.  We don’t want animals in captivity or enclosed in any way unless it is to rescue or save them”

While Costa Rica is a fairly small country, it has amazing biodiversity.  Over four percent of all known species on Earth are represented in the small Central American country.

In 2009, Costa Rica was ranked as the greenest country in the world.  It has made great strides in the area of environmental sustainability and is consistently in the top tier of Latin American countries in the area of human development.  Costa Rica has also developed a reputation for progressive behavior towards wild animals.  In 2002, the country banned circus animals and in 2012, it became the first country on the American continent to ban recreational hunting.

The country’s plan to close its zoos will take effect March 2014 when the government contract with zoo operators expires.  The area where the current zoos are located will be transformed into urban parks where wildlife can freely roam.

Animals that are currently in captivity will be evaluated before being released.  Those deemed fit for life in the wild will be released while those that are unsuited for a return to the jungle will be relocated to wildlife sanctuaries or rescue centers.

This is an amazing movement towards a more balanced approach of living in a more natural manner.  Tribal cultures lived in balance with the world around them and as a result, had extensive knowledge of the natural world.  By moving back towards such balance, perhaps we can retain more "shamanic wisdom" to help us deal with the ever changing modern world.
