Take Action: Don’t Criminalise Sex-Selective Abortion

I don’t know whether or not I would have an abortion and I don’t know if I would have an abortion based upon predicted gender. I’ve never been in that position and I’ve never had to make that choice. Perhaps I wouldn’t care either way what gender my child was? Either way, I’m not egotistical enough to think that other people should live their lives just as I live mine and that’s why I’m pro-choice. Fiona Bruce MP & chairwoman All-Party Parliamentary Pro-Life Group has proposed an amendment to the Serious Crime Bill which aims to make abortion on the grounds of gender a specific criminal offence, a move that has been dubbed a ‘trojan horse attack’ by Abortion Rights who have today called upon their supporters to urge their MPs to vote against the amendment.

GhostArk: Same Old Pseudo-Science In A Different Box?

The GhostArk claims to be the world’s first ‘all in one’ piece of ghost hunting equipment. It’s a proud boast but it amounts to very little because all of the functions that it offers the user are mostly pseudo-scientific and don’t do very much at all. It’s the same old ghost hunting nonsense dressed up in a new box. As Engadget state ‘ghost detection is based on junk science’ and it’s not even clear if the product will make it to market at all. The website for the soon-to-be-released device lists the functions and gives a brief description of each. Continue reading

Weakly Ghost Bulletin #4

It’s time for the last Weakly Ghost Bulletin (WGB) of January 2015 and, all in all, January has been a pretty average month when it comes to silly ghost stories making the press. Last week’s WGB was a bit weirder than average because Lee Brickley went on one of his attention seeking sprees and claimed that a Slenderman-like spirit or spirits were haunting people. I covered that in WGB #3, as well as in an open letter Brickley himself. It wasn’t long before people went to the media with what they claimed was evidence of Slenderman… but before I get too caught up in the subject let’s get on with… Continue reading

I’m a Real Life Female Ghost Buster & I Say “BRING IT ON!”

Throughout the history of paranormal research, women have often been the leading figures despite being under-represented at every step of the way. Eleanor Sidgwick was a leading figure in the Society for Psychical Research – easily the most established organisation dedicated to paranormal research in the country, if not the globe. Sidgwick was the president of the Society from 1908 to 1909. She had a huge hand in the work that went into the Census of Hallucinations, described by the SPR as ‘a survey on a very considerable scale which set out to establish the probability of reports of crisis apparitions being due to chance coincidence; the report on this work, prepared largely by Eleanor Sidgwick, ruled out this possibility.’ Continue reading
