Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) has been called the “sleeping prophet,” the “father of holistic medicine,” and the most documented psychic of the 20th century. For more than 40 years of his adult life, Cayce gave psychic “readings” to thousands of seekers while in an unconscious state, diagnosing illnesses and revealing lives lived in the past and prophecies yet to come. But who, exactly, was Edgar Cayce?

Cayce was born on a farm in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, in 1877, and his psychic abilities began to appear as early as his childhood. He was able to see and talk to his late grandfather’s spirit, and often played with “imaginary friends” whom he said were spirits on the other side. He also displayed an uncanny ability to memorize the pages of a book simply by sleeping on it. These gifts labeled the young Cayce as strange, but all Cayce really wanted was to help others, especially children.

Later in life, Cayce would find that he had the ability to put himself into a sleep-like state by lying down on a couch, closing his eyes, and folding his hands over his stomach. In this state of relaxation and meditation, he was able to place his mind in contact with all time and space — the universal consciousness, also known as the super-conscious mind. From there, he could respond to questions as broad as, “What are the secrets of the universe?” and “What is my purpose in life?” to as specific as, “What can I do to help my arthritis?” and “How were the pyramids of Egypt built? His responses to these questions came to be called “readings,” and their insights offer practical help and advice to individuals even today.

Many people are surprised to learn that Edgar Cayce was a devoted churchgoer and Sunday school teacher. At a young age, Cayce vowed to read the Bible for every year of his life, and at the time of his death in 1945, he had accomplished this task. Perhaps the readings said it best, when asked how to become psychic, Cayce’s advice was to become more spiritual.

Although Cayce died more than 60 years ago, the timeliness of the material in the readings — with subjects like how to discovering your mission in life, developing your intuition, exploring ancient mysteries, and taking responsibility for your health — is evidenced by the hundreds of books that have been written on the various aspects of this work as well as the dozen or so titles focusing on Cayce’s life itself. Together, these books contain information so valuable that even Edgar Cayce himself might have hesitated to predict their impact on the contemporary world. In 1945, the year of his passing, who could have known that terms such as “meditation,” “Akashic records,” “spiritual growth,” “auras,” “soul mates,” and “holistic health” would become household words to millions?

The majority of Edgar Cayce’s readings deal with holistic health and the treatment of illness. As it was at the time Cayce was giving readings, still today, individuals from all walks of life and belief receive physical relief from illnesses or ailments through information given in the readings — some readings were given as far back as 100 years ago! Yet, although best known for this material, the sleeping Cayce did not seem to be limited to concerns about the physical body. In fact, in their entirety, the readings discuss an astonishing 10,000 different topics. This vast array of subject matter can be narrowed down into a smaller group of topics that, when compiled together, deal with the following five categories: (1) Health-Related Information; (2) Philosophy and Reincarnation; (3) Dreams and Dream Interpretation; (4) ESP and Psychic Phenomena; and (5) Spiritual Growth, Meditation, and Prayer.

Edgar Cayce was an American who claimed to be a psychic. He had demonstrated an ability to channel answers to questions on subjects such as health or Atlantis, while in a self-induced trance. Though Cayce considered himself a devout Christian and lived before the emergence of the New Age Movement, some believe he was the founder of the movement and had influence on its teachings.

Cayce became a celebrity toward the end of his life and the publicity given to his prophecies has overshadowed what to him were usually considered the more important parts of his work, such as healing (the vast majority of his readings were given for people who were sick) and theology (Cayce was a lifelong, devout member of the Disciples of Christ). Skeptics challenge the statement that Cayce demonstrated psychic abilities, and traditional Christians also question his unorthodox answers on religious matters (such as reincarnation and Akashic records).

1877 to 1920—the Kentucky period

In December 1893, the Cayce family moved to Hopkinsville, Kentucky and occupied 705 West Seventh, on the south-east corner of Seventh and Young Street. During this time, Cayce received an eighth-grade education; discovered his spiritual vocation; left the family farm to pursue various forms of employment (at Richard’s Dry Goods Store and then in Hopper’s Bookstore, both located on Main Street).

Cayce’s education stopped with the ninth grade because his family could not afford the costs involved. A ninth-grade education was often considered more than sufficient for working-class children. Much of the remainder of Cayce’s younger years would be characterized by a search for both employment and money.

Throughout his life, Cayce was drawn to church as a member of the Disciples of Christ. He read the Bible once for every year of his life, taught at Sunday school, and recruited missionaries, and he is said to have agonized over the issue of whether his supposed psychic abilities—and the teachings which resulted—were spiritually legitimate.

In 1900, he formed a business partnership with his father to sell Woodmen of the World Insurance but was struck by severe laryngitis in March that resulted in a complete loss of speech. Unable to work, he lived at home with his parents for almost a year. He then decided to take up the trade of photography, an occupation that would exert less strain on his voice. He began an apprenticeship at the photography studio of W.R. Bowles in Hopkinsville.

A traveling stage hypnotist and entertainer called “Hart—The Laugh Man” was performing at the Hopkinsville Opera House in 1901. He heard about Cayce’s condition and offered to attempt a cure. Cayce accepted, and the experiment took place on stage in front of an audience. Remarkably, Cayce’s voice apparently returned while in a hypnotic trance but allegedly disappeared on awakening. Hart tried a posthypnotic suggestion that the voice would continue to function after the trance, but this proved unsuccessful.

Since Hart had appointments at other cities, he could not continue his hypnotic treatment of Cayce. However, a local hypnotist, Al Layne, offered to help Cayce in restoring his voice. Layne suggested that Cayce describe the nature of his condition and cure while in a hypnotic trance. Cayce described his own ailment from a first person plural point of view (“we”) instead of the singular (“I”). In subsequent readings he would generally start off with “We have the body.” According to the reading, his voice loss was due to psychological paralysis and could be corrected by increasing the blood flow to the voice box. Layne suggested that the blood flow be increased, and Cayce’s face supposedly became flushed with blood and his chest area and the throat turned bright red. After 20 minutes Cayce, still in trance, declared the treatment over. On awakening, his voice was alleged to have remained normal. Relapses were said to have occurred but were said to have been corrected by Layne in the same way, and eventually the cure was said to be permanent.

Layne had read of similar hypnotic cures effected by the Marquis de Puységur, a follower of Franz Mesmer, and was keen to explore the limits of the healing knowledge of the trance voice. He asked Cayce to describe Layne’s own ailments and suggest cures and reportedly found the results both accurate and effective. Layne suggested that Cayce offer his trance healing to the public, but Cayce was reluctant. He finally agreed on the condition that readings would be free. He began with Layne’s help to offer free treatments to the townspeople. As his success and fame spread, he became known as “The Miracle Worker of Virginia Beach.” Reports of Cayce’s work appeared in the newspapers, inspiring many postal inquiries. Cayce was able to work just as effectively using a letter from the individual as with having the person present. Given the person’s name and location, he said he could diagnose the physical and/or mental conditions and provide a remedy. He became popular and soon people from around the world sought his advice through correspondence.

Cayce’s work grew in volume as his fame grew. He asked for voluntary donations to support himself and his family so that he could practice full time. He continued to work in an apparent trance state with a hypnotist all his life. His wife and eldest son later replaced Layne in this role. A secretary, Gladys Davis, recorded his readings in shorthand.

1920 to 1923—the Texas period

The growing fame of Cayce coupled with the popularity he received from newspapers attracted several eager commercially minded men who wanted to seek a fortune by using Cayce’s clairvoyant abilities. Even though Cayce was reluctant to help them, he was persuaded to give the readings, which left him dissatisfied with himself and unsuccessful. A cotton merchant offered Cayce a hundred dollars a day for his readings about the daily outcomes in the cotton market. However, despite his poor finances, Cayce refused the merchant’s offer. Others wanted to know where to hunt for treasures; some wanted to know the outcome of horse races. Several times he was persuaded to give the readings as an experiment. However, he was not successful when he used his ability for such purposes, doing no better than chance alone would dictate. These experiments allegedly left him depleted of energy, distraught, and unsatisfied with himself. Finally, he came to the conclusion that he would use his gift only to help the distressed and sick.

He was persuaded to give readings on philosophical subjects in 1923 by Arthur Lammers, a wealthy printer who, by his own admission, had been “studying metaphysics for years”. While in his supposed trance state, Cayce was told by Lammers that he spoke of Lammer’s past lives and of reincarnation, something Lammers believed in, which was a popular subject of the day but not an accepted part of Christian doctrine. Cayce questioned his stenographer as to what he had said in his trance state and remained unconvinced. Cayce himself challenged Lammers’s charge that he had validated astrology and reincarnation in the following dialog:

Cayce “I said all that?…I couldn’t have said all that in one reading.” “No,” Lammers said; “but you confirmed it. You see, I have been studying metaphysics for years, and I was able by a few questions, by the facts you gave, to check what is right and what is wrong with a whole lot of the stuff I’ve been reading. The important thing is that the basic system which runs through all the mystery religions, whether they come from Tibet or the pyramids of Egypt, is backed up by you. It’s actually the right system.”  Cayce’s stenographer recorded the following:

“In this we see the plan of development of those individuals set upon this plane, meaning the ability to enter again into the presence of the Creator and become a full part of that creation.
Insofar as this entity is concerned, this is the third appearance on this plane, and before this one, as the monk. We see glimpses in the life of the entity now as were shown in the monk, in this mode of living.
The body is only the vehicle ever of that spirit and soul that waft through all times and ever remain the same.”

Cayce was quite unconvinced (that he had been referring to and, as such, had validated the doctrine of reincarnation), and the best Lammers could offer was that the reading “opens up the door” and went on to share his beliefs and knowledge of the “truth” with Cayce.  It appeared Cayce’s instincts were telling him this was no ordinary reading. This client who came for a reading came with quite a bit of information of his own to share with Cayce and seemed intent upon convincing Cayce, now that he felt the reading had confirmed his strongly held beliefs. It should be noted, however, that 12 years earlier Cayce had briefly alluded to reincarnation. In reading 4841-1, given April 22, 1911, Cayce referred to the soul being “transmigrated.” Because, as noted below, there are several thousand missing Cayce readings from the period up to 1923, it is possible that he may have also mentioned reincarnation in other readings as well.

Cayce reported that his conscience bothered him severely over this conflict. Lammers overwhelmed, manipulated, confused, reassured and argued with Cayce. Ultimately his “trance voice,” the “we” of the readings, also supposedly dialogued with Cayce and finally persuaded him to continue with these kinds of readings. In 1925 Cayce reported that his “voice” had instructed him to move to Virginia Beach, Virginia.

1925 to 1945—the Virginia Beach period

Cayce’s mature period, in which he created the several institutions which would survive him in some form, can be considered to have started in 1925. By this time he was a professional psychic with a small staff of employees and volunteers. The “readings” increasingly came to involve occult or esoteric themes.

Cayce gained national prominence in 1943 through a high-profile article in Coronet titled “Miracle Man of Virginia Beach”. He said he couldn’t refuse people who felt they needed his help, and he increased the frequency of his readings to eight per day to try to make an impression on the ever-growing pile of requests. He said this took a toll on his health as it was emotionally draining and often fatigued him. He even went so far as to say that the readings themselves scolded him for attempting too much and that he should limit his workload to just two readings a day or else they would kill him.

Edgar Cayce suffered from a stroke and died on January 3, 1945. He is buried in Riverside Cemetery in Hopkinsville, Kentucky.

Claimed psychic abilities

Edgar Cayce has variously been referred to as a “prophet” (cf. Jess Stearn‘s book, The Sleeping Prophet), a “mystic“, a “seer”, and a “clairvoyant“.

Cayce’s methods involved lying down and entering into what appeared to be a trance or sleep state, usually at the request of a subject who was seeking help with health or other personal problems (subjects were not usually present). The subject’s questions would then be given to Cayce, and Cayce would proceed with a reading. At first these readings dealt primarily with the physical health of the individual (physical readings); later readings on past lives, business advice, dream interpretation, and mental or spiritual health were also given.

Until September 1923, they were not systematically preserved. However, an October 10, 1922, Birmingham (Alabama) Age-Herald article quotes Cayce as saying that he had given 8,056 readings as of that date, and it is known that he gave approximately 13,000-14,000 readings after that date. Today, only about 14,000 are available at Cayce headquarters and on-line. Thus, it appears that about 7,000-8,000 Cayce readings are missing.

When out of the trance he entered to perform a reading, Cayce said he generally did not remember what he had said during the reading. The unconscious mind, according to Cayce, has access to information which the conscious mind does not — a common assumption about hypnosis in Cayce’s time. After Gladys Davis became Cayce’s secretary on September 10, 1923, all readings were preserved and his wife Gertrude Evans Cayce generally conducted (guided) the readings.

Cayce said that his trance statements should be taken into account only to the extent that they led to a better life for the recipient. Moreover, he invited his audience to test his suggestions rather than accept them on faith.

Other abilities that have been attributed to Cayce include astral projection, prophesying, mediumship, viewing the Akashic Records or “Book of Life“, and seeing auras. Cayce said he became interested in learning more about these subjects after he was informed about the content of his readings, which he reported that he never actually heard himself.

The health readings are most numerous, and they involve many alternative health concepts and practices. Cayce described his work in terms of Christian service. People with esoteric interests have focused on a somewhat different set of topics.

  • Origin and destiny of humanity: “All souls were created in the beginning, and are finding their way back to whence they came.” [Reading 3744-5] The Cayce readings could be interpreted as saying that human souls were created with a consciousness of their oneness with God. Some “fell” from this state; others—led by the Jesus soul—volunteered to save them. The Earth, with all its limitations, was created as a suitable arena for spiritual growth. It could also be interpreted as saying that all beings are born and all will eventually die.
  • Reincarnation: Cayce’s work teaches the reality of reincarnation and karma, but as instruments of a loving God rather than blind natural laws. Its purpose is to teach us certain spiritual lessons. Animals have undifferentiated, “group” souls rather than individuality and consciousness. Humans have never been incarnated as animals. He describes a very complex design arranged between souls and God to “meet the needs of existing conditions”, which was a reference to the souls who became entrapped in the Earth’s physical materiality, which was not intended for a habitat of the soul. In There Is A River, a biography about Cayce by Thomas Sugrue, we are told by Sugrue that spirit “thought-forms” stayed near and guided the anthropoid ape which was chosen to be the most ideal vehicle for the human physical race to be created from, and psychically guided their separate evolution into a Homo sapiens species. This contradicts Cayce’s view. In reading (3744-5), Cayce states “Man DID NOT descend from the monkey, but man has evolved, resuscitation, you see, from time to time, time to time, here a little, there a little, line upon line and line and line upon line.” Cayce’s view arguably incorporates and parallels Theosophical teachings on spiritual evolution.
  • Astrology: Cayce accepts astrology on the basis that our souls spend time on other planets (or perhaps their spiritual counterparts) in between incarnations. The position of the planets at our birth records these influences.
  • Universal laws: Souls incarnated on the Earth are subject to certain spiritual laws such as, “As ye sow, so shall ye reap” (karma) or “As ye judge (others), so shall ye be judged.” Properly regarded, such laws represent an aspect of God’s mercy whereby no matter what our circumstances, He has promised to guide us in our spiritual path. Cayce said that when you view it from the highest dimension, there is no time and no space, nor any future or past, and that it is all happening in one fascinating expression and that time is an illusion that has purpose.
  • Unknown Life of Jesus: Cayce presented narratives of Jesus’ previous incarnations, including a mysterious Atlantean figure called “Amilius” as well as the more familiar biblical figures of Adam, Enoch, Melchizedek, Joshua, Asaph, and Jeshua. Cayce describes Jesus as an Essene who traveled to India in his youth in order to study Eastern religions, more specifically astrology.
    • Jesus and Christ: Following New Thought precedent, Cayce distinguishes between Jesus and Christhood. Briefly, Jesus was a soul like us who reincarnated through many lifetimes. “Christhood” is something he was the first to allow to be “manifest” through his material life, and it is something which we also ought to aspire towards. Cayce accordingly calls Jesus our “elder brother” and frequently makes reference to the way of the “lowly Nazarene.”
  • Ideals: Cayce repeatedly stresses the choice of an ideal as the foundation of the spiritual path. “And O that all would realize… that what we are… is the result of what we have done about the ideals we have set” (1549-1). We may choose any ideal we feel drawn to. As we attempt to apply it in our lives, God will guide us further, perhaps inspiring us to revise our choice of ideal. The highest ideal, says Cayce, is Christ; however, the readings recognize “the Christ spirit” in some form as the basis for religions other than Christianity.
  • Body, Mind, Spirit: Cayce often invokes these three terms, or their equivalents, to describe the human condition. “Spirit is the life. Mind is the builder. Physical is the result.” (conflation of various readings). The concept has application not only to holistic health but also to the spiritual life.
  • Meditation: While Cayce sometimes described particular meditation techniques of sitting or chanting “Arrr–eee-oommm” the crucial element, he believed, is that of opening up to divine influences. The Search For God books say that “Through prayer we speak to God. In meditation, God speaks to us.” Cayce’s concept of meditation has some aspects in common with Hinduism or Buddhism (the chakras, kundalini) but is most similar to Christian versions of New Thought. The symbolism of the Book of Revelation, he says, is based on meditative experiences.
  • Extra-sensory perception: Cayce accepted psychic experiences and ESP as a natural by-product of soul growth. God may speak to us through dreams (many readings consist of dream interpretation), or through intuitions similar to the pangs of conscience. However, Cayce did not endorse Spiritualism or mediumship on the grounds that supposed entities thus contacted are not necessarily particularly lofty. Instead, he encouraged seekers to focus on Christ.
  • Atlantis: The Cayce readings spoke of the existence of Atlantis, a legendary continent with an advanced technology whose refugees peopled ancient Egypt as well as pre-Columbian America. Cayce’s description of Atlantis has much in common with that of Ignatius L. Donnelly. According to Cayce, Atlantean society was divided into two long-lived political factions—a “good” faction called the “Sons of the Law of One,” and an “evil” faction called the “Sons of Belial.” Many people alive today are the reincarnations of Atlantean souls, he believed, who must now face similar temptations as before. It is said Atlantis suffered three major destructions, one of which was the deluge. According to the readings, a major source of turmoil was the Sons of Belial’s desire to exploit the Things, sub-humans with animal appendages and low intelligence, and the movements to protect and evolve them by the Sons of the Law of One. The final destruction was the overcharging of the crystal which caused a massive explosion.
  • Egypt: Next to biblical times, the most significant era for the “life readings” was a pre-dynastic Egyptian civilization consisting of Atlantean refugees. Cayce purported to have been an Egyptian priest named “Ra Ta” who built a spiritually-based healing center (the “Temple of Sacrifice”) and educational institution (the “Temple Beautiful”). His diagnostic readings and narratives about the past and future were supposed to be a continuation of his ancient work. This civilization also built monuments on the Giza plateau, including the Great Pyramid, and left records of Atlantis in a “hall of records” located somewhere beneath the Great Sphinx of Giza. These readings bear a close resemblance to books by AMORC founder H. Spencer Lewis.
  • Earth Changes: Cayce coined the term Earth Changes (later widely used in New Age writings), a reference to a series of cataclysm events which he prophesied would take place in future decades — notably including the Earth shifting on its axis, and most of California dropping into the Pacific Ocean following a catastrophic earthquake.
  • Cayce “cures”: Cayce’s medical readings typically prescribe poultices (often of castor oil), osteopathic adjustments, colonic irrigation, massage (often with peanut oil), prayer, folk remedies (e.g. charcoal tablets), various forms of electric medicine and patent medicines (such as Atomidine), and specific recommendations concerning diet and exercise. Cayce is often seen as a practitioner of holistic medicine, and has particularly strong philosophical ties with naturopathy.
  • “Cayce diet”: Major dietary recommendations include the avoidance of red meat, alcohol (except red wine), white bread, and fried foods; a preference for fruits and above-ground, leafy vegetables over starches; and a high ratio (80:20%) of alkaline foods over acidic. One meal per day should consist entirely of raw vegetables. Under strict circumstances, Cayce advocated both coffee and pure tobacco cigarettes to be non-harmful to health. “Food combining” was also a central idea in the Cayce diet. According to Cayce, several food combinations that are contraindicated are coffee with milk or sugar, citrus fruit with starchy foods, and high protein foods with starches. Cayce himself followed very few of the dietary recommendations that were suggested by the readings. According to Cayce, two or three almonds (see Amygdalin) a day keeps cancer away.
  • Dream interpretation: Cayce was one of the early dream interpreters who contradicted Freudian views by saying that dreams can be of many different kinds (including sexual) with many levels of meaning; that lack of interest is the reason for poor dream recall; that only the dreamer knows the meaning of his dream; and that a dream is correctly interpreted when it makes sense to the dreamer, when it checks out with his other dreams, and when it moves him forward in his life.

American mystic known as “The Sleeping Prophet.” While in a sleep state he could discuss history, geology, metaphysics, philosophy and medicine. He gave approximately 30,000 life-readings and medical diagnosis to people during his lifetime. He founded a hospital, a university and the A.R.E. (Association for Research and Enlightenment) in Virginia Beach, Virginia that promotes research on his readings and continues his work.

Edgar Cayce was born to uneducated farming parents. He attended country school only as far as the eighth grade. As a child he had a strong desire to become a preacher, which he never formally realized. He prayed to be able to help others, especially children, and had a spiritual vision in 1890, at age 13, that told him he would be able to accomplish this dream of service. A lady bathed in light told Cayce to sleep with his head on his books, and then he would be able to remember what was in them. This was at a time when he was having trouble in school, and his father was apparently beating him for not being able to spell the words in his lessons correctly. Soon after, he showed signs of special abilities when he found that he could sleep on his school books and have photographic recall of every page, and he seems to have continued using this

ability throughout his early life– such as when he got a job at an office supply and book store after having first been turned away, by demonstrating to the owners that he was more familiar with their catalog and inventory than they were.

On 3/16/1886 Cayce had his first vision. Two years later he was pronounced dead from drowning, but recovered. In 1900 he developed a severe case of laryngitis that doctors couldn’t cure. In desperation he tried hypnosis from a traveling practitioner and was cured after several treatments. Under hypnosis, he gave his first psychic reading on 3/31/1901 and learned that he could give accurate medical diagnoses and healing recommendations for himself and for other people. Requests for his readings increased by word-of-mouth.

Cayce married Gertrude Evans, his first serious girlfriend, after eight years of courtship on 6/17/1903. Their first child, son Hugh Lynn, was born on 3/16/1907 and his second son, Milton Porter, was born in 3/28/1911 and died 5/17/1911. Gertrude, weakened with grief, became ill with tuberculosis, and was cured by following the recommendations in her husband’s readings for her. Hugh Lynn’s eye was severely burned in an accident with photo flash powder in Cayce’s studio. Readings for him proved successful as well. On 2/08/1918 his third son, Edgar Evans, was born.

Two tragic fires plagued his photographic work; one occurred on 12/23/1906 and destroyed his studio and many paintings and works of art he had at the studio for a show and the other destroyed his new studio in September 1907.

By 1910, Cayce was receiving a great deal of publicity, particularly as a result of a New York Times article. He began giving readings in Hopkinsville as a “psychic diagnostician.” At the same time, he operated his own photographic studio to support his family. The work with the readings progressed to the point where a full-time secretary was needed to record and transcribe the readings. Gladys Davis was hired in 1923 to perform that function. The family, with Gladys, moved to Dayton, Ohio later that year and Cayce began giving readings on a full-time basis. He established the Cayce Psychic Institute and began to give his first life readings, citing information on past lives of the inquirers, and other metaphysical topics in addition to the health readings.

In 1924, Cayce met a wealthy New York stockbroker who agreed to fund his work. They planned a national organization that would be called the Association of National Investigators. The readings recommended that the organization be located in Virginia Beach where a hospital was to be built, so the family moved there. The dream of the hospital was realized with its opening in 1927. Atlantic University opened in 1930 to study the readings and provide a college education. Hard times hit when funding was withdrawn and the hospital closed in February 1931. The Association of National Investigators disbanded that same year. Cayce was distraught, but a group of loyal supporters urged him to for a new organization, called the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), in Virginia Beach.

Cayce, his wife Gertrude and secretary Gladys Davis were arrested on charges of fortune-telling during a visit to New York in 1931, but the charges were dismissed. Four years later, Cayce, his son Hugh Lynn, and his stenographer were arrested in Detroit for practicing medicine without a license as a result of giving a reading for a sick child. Edgar was convicted and freed on probation.

More publicity came in 1943 with the publication of the Cayce biography, “There is a River” by Thomas Sugrue, and a Coronet magazine article, “Miracle Man of Virginia Beach.” Heavy mail requests for readings deluged the A.R.E. Cayce struggled to keep up with the workload, giving many more readings than usual each day, against the advice of his own readings. His last reading of over 30,000 was given on 9/17/1944. He suffered a stroke and final illness and died on 1/03/1945 at 7:15 PM EWT in Virginia Beach. A few hours before dying, he roused from his sleep and said, “How much the world needs God today.” His wife, Gertrude, died three months later on Easter Sunday, 4/01/1945, at sunrise. His mother died 25/10/1926; father died 11/04/1937.

Throughout his life, Cayce claimed no special abilities and did not capitalize financially or otherwise on his gifts. The readings never offered a set of beliefs or “religion” to be embraced, but instead focused on the idea that every person should test in his or her own life the principles presented. Though Cayce was a devout Christian who read the Bible through once for every year of his life, his work emphasized the importance of comparative study of belief systems from around the world. In fact, some of the metaphysical material that came through the sleeping Cayce was at first confusing and distressing to him in his waking state. However, he overcame his doubts, as have others, by observing the amazing accuracy and unfailing helpfulness of the readings in other areas, such as healing. For some, the Christian language of the readings is at first an obstacle. Yet, the underlying principle of the readings is the oneness of all life, acceptance of all people, and a compassion and understanding for every major religion in the world.

Caylee Marie Anthony (August 9, 2005 – c. June 16, 2008)[1] was an American child who disappeared in June 2008, attracting national attention. Her body was discovered five months later.[2] Her mother, Casey Anthony, was indicted on charges of first-degree murder on October 14, 2008, and was in county jail when jury selection for her trial began May 9, 2011. Casey Anthony has maintained she did not harm her daughter and that she is innocent of all charges. Caylee’s paternity is not known as a fact. Tests have ruled out several men, including Casey’s father and brother, as Caylee’s father.[3]

On July 13, 2008, while doing yard work, Cindy and George Anthony found a notice from the post office for a certified letter affixed on their front door. George Anthony picked up the certified letter from the post office on July 15, 2008, and found out that their daughter’s car was in a tow yard.[4] George told an employee at the tow yard and later the police that when he picked up the car, the smell of the car had made him afraid that his daughter and granddaughter could be deceased in the trunk.[5] When the trunk was opened it contained a bag of trash.[6]

Caylee Anthony was reported missing to the Orange County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office on July 15, 2008, [7] by her grandmother, Cynthia “Cindy” Anthony. In the same call, Casey Anthony acknowledged to the operator that her daughter had been missing “for 31 days.”[8][9] Caylee had lived in her grandparents’ home with her mother, Casey Anthony, until June 15, 2008.[7] According to George Anthony, Caylee’s grandfather, Casey left the family’s home on June 16, 2008,[7] taking Caylee, who was almost 3, with her.[10] Cindy asked repeatedly during the month to see Caylee but Casey stated she was too busy with a work assignment in Tampa. At other times, she said Caylee was with a nanny, later identified by Casey as Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, at theme parks or the beach.[11]

Casey Anthony was first arrested on July 16, 2008,[7] and was charged the following day with giving false statements, neglect of a child, and obstruction of a criminal investigation. The judge denied bail, saying Casey had shown “woeful disregard for the welfare of her child”.[12]

Investigation

When Detective Yuri Melich, with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, began investigating the disappearance of Caylee Anthony, he found discrepancies in what her mother, Casey Anthony, had told law enforcement in her signed statement.[13] When questioned, Casey said her child was with a nanny. The nanny, however, was never seen by Casey’s parents or her friends, boyfriends, family, or acquaintances.[11][12]

On August 11, 12, and 13, 2008, tips of a suspicious object found in a forested area near the Anthony residence were called in to police by a utility worker. After another report on December 11, 2008, the remains were found in a plastic bag.[14][15][16][17] [18] On December 12, the remains were tentatively identified as Caylee’s.[19]

On August 21, 2008, Casey Anthony was released after one month of incarceration. She was released from the Orange County jail after her $500,200 bond was posted by California bail bondsman Leonard Padilla.[20] She was arrested again on August 29, 2008, on charges of forgery, fraudulent use of personal information, and petty theft for forging $700 worth of checks and using her friend’s credit cards without permission.[21] Leonard Padilla, whose nephew posted Casey Anthony’s $500,200 bail, stated that if he had known before the bail was posted what he learned later, and that Anthony would not cooperate with him, he probably would not have helped get her out of jail.[22]

On December 15, WFTV reported that more bones were found in the wooded area near where the skull was discovered.[23] On December 19, 2008, medical examiner Jan Garavaglia confirmed that the remains found were those of Caylee Anthony. The death was ruled a homicide and cause of death listed as undetermined.[24]

Arrests and charges

Casey Anthony

Casey Anthony’s mugshot
Born Casey Marie Anthony
March 19, 1986 (1986-03-19) (age 25)[25]
Warren, Ohio, U.S.

Casey Anthony was offered a limited immunity deal by prosecutors until September 2, 2008, but did not take it.[26] Casey Anthony was arrested for the third time on September 15, 2008, on new charges of theft,[27] and was released shortly afterward.[28]

On September 5, 2008, Casey Anthony was released again on bail after being fitted with an electronic tracking device.[29] Her $500,000 bond was posted anonymously,[30] and it was later revealed that her parents, Cindy and George Anthony, signed a promissory note for the bond.[31]

On October 14, 2008, Casey Anthony was indicted by a grand jury on charges of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child and four counts of providing false information to police.[32] She was arrested for the fourth time. She entered a plea of not-guilty to the charges that she killed Caylee.[28] On October 21, 2008, the charges of child neglect were dropped against Casey. In a statement that morning, the State Attorney’s Office explained: “The neglect charges were premised on the theory that Caylee was still alive. As the investigation progressed and it became clear that the evidence proved that the child was deceased, the State sought an indictment on the legally appropriate charges.”[33]

On April 14, 2009, prosecutors announced that they plan to seek the death penalty in this case.[34]

Publicity

The case attracted a large amount of national media attention, and was regularly the main topic of many talk shows, including those hosted by Greta Van Susteren, Nancy Grace, Geraldo Rivera, and others. It has been featured on Fox‘s America’s Most Wanted,[35] NBC‘s Dateline, and ABC‘s 20/20.

Grace labelled Casey Anthony the “tot mom”[36][37][38] and urged the public to let “the professionals, the psychics and police” do their job.[7][39][40][41][42]

Casey Anthony’s parents, Cindy and George, appeared on The Today Show on October 22, 2008. They maintained their belief that Caylee was alive and would be found.[43] Larry Garrison, president of SilverCreek Entertainment, was their spokesman until he resigned in November 2008, citing that he was leaving due to “the Anthony family’s erratic behavior”.[44]

More than 6000 pages of evidence released by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, including hundreds of instant messages between Casey and ex-boyfriend Tony Rusciano, have been the subject of increased scrutiny by the media for clues and possible motives in the homicide.[45] Rusciano, a rookie Orange County deputy, was fired for lying about his sexual relationship with Casey Anthony.[7]

Outside the Anthony home, WESH TV 2 reported that protesters repeatedly shouted “baby killer”[46] and that George Anthony was physically attacked.[47] George Anthony was reported missing on January 22, 2009, after he failed to show up for a meeting with his lawyer, Brad Conway. George was found in a Daytona Beach hotel the next day after sending messages to family members threatening suicide. He was taken to Halifax Hospital for psychiatric evaluation[48] and later released.

Evidence

The Anthony case broke new ground regarding scientific evidence.

University of Tennessee‘s famous ‘Body Farm‘ discovered ‘hair banding’, a phenomenon in which hair roots can form a dark band after death. A hair found in the trunk of the Anthony car exhibited this pattern.[47] Also new is the work of University of Tennessee’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory in which air extracted from the trunk of the Anthony car revealed human decomposition and the presence of chloroform.[47]

On Friday, October 24, 2008, a forensic report by Dr. Arpad Vass of the Oak Ridge Laboratory in Tennessee stated that results from an air sampling procedure (called LIBS) performed in the trunk of Casey Anthony’s car showed chemical compounds “consistent with a decompositional event” based on the presence of five key chemical compounds out of over 400 possible chemical compounds that Dr. Vass’s research group considers typical of decomposition. (Human decomposition was not specified.) Whether or not the decomposition was human is still unknown but was indicated as a possibility. The process has not been affirmed by a Daubert Test in the courts.[49] Dr. Vass’s group also stated there was the presence of chloroform in the car trunk. In evidence hearings in March and April 2011, Dr. Ken Furton, a biochemist and nuclear chemist, pointed out with examples from various studies that there is no consensus in the field on what chemicals are typical of human decomposition.[citation needed]

DNA samples could not confirm whether the source was alive or dead. The only DNA testing by the FBI was limited to 752 base pairs out of 16,569 base pairs (less than 5% of the mitochondrial genome sequence). Traces of chloroform were also found in Casey Anthony’s car trunk, and evidence was found that someone had searched the Internet on her computer for the use of the chemical and how to make it.[50] On November 26, 2008, officials released 700 pages of documents related to the Anthony investigation, which included evidence of Google searches of the terms “neck breaking”, “how to make chloroform“, and “death” on Casey Anthony’s home computer.[51]

Investigators also entered into the body of evidence a photo from the computer of Ricardo Morales, an ex-boyfriend of Casey Anthony, which depicts a joke in which a man is using a chloroform-soaked rag to drug a woman. Casey and Caylee Anthony had stayed with Morales on several occasions until June 9, 2008.[citation needed]

On February 18, 2009, documents released by the State Attorney’s Office in Florida indicated that the same type of laundry bag, duct tape, and plastic bags discovered at the crime scene were found in the house where Casey and Caylee resided. Heart-shaped stickers were also recovered by investigators. According to an FBI laboratory email, a heart-shaped outline was originally seen on the duct tape that was recovered from the mouth area of Caylee’s skull, but the laboratory was not able to capture the heart shape photographically and could no longer see it after the duct tape was dusted for fingerprint processing. The documents also indicate that Cindy Anthony stated to them that a Winnie the Pooh blanket was missing from Caylee’s bed. This type of blanket was found at the crime scene. An entry from Casey Anthony’s diary was also released.[52]

The following diary entry by Casey Anthony is dated “June 21” and reads:

I have no regrets, just a bit worried. I just want for everything to work out OK. I completely trust my own judgment and know that I made the right decision. I just hope that the end justifies the means. I just want to know what the future will hold for me. I guess I will soon see – This is the happiest that I have been in a very long time. I hope that my happiness will continue to grow– I’ve made new friends that I really like. I’ve surrounded myself with good people – I am finally happy. Let’s just hope that it doesn’t change.[53]

Transfer writing (imprints of writing) from other pages of the diary mentioned a person named Kenneth whom Casey had dated in 2003. A member of Casey Anthony’s defense team, spokeswoman Marti MacKenzie, contends that this entry was written in 2003 prior to the time that Caylee was born. The defense contends that the opposite page has “’03” written in one of the corners as the date, and the handwriting on the two pages match. However, there was no authentication that this is a date, or when it was entered in the diary or by whom. The prosecution acknowledged that it did not know when the entry was made.[54] In January 2010, however, an FBI report released in the media stated that the diary in question was not sold until 2004.[55]

Civil case

Anthony told investigators that she had left 2-year-old Caylee on June 16 with a babysitter named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez – also known as “Zanny” – at a specific Orlando apartment complex. A woman named Zenaida Gonzalez who was on the apartment records as having visited apartments on that date was questioned by police and said she did not know Casey or Caylee.[56] She has since filed a defamation suit seeking compensatory and punitive damages, alleging that Casey willfully damaged her reputation.[57] It was reported that Anthony would be exercising her rights under the Fifth Amendment in response to written questions in the civil case.[58] The civil trial is set for August 29, 2011.

Former attorneys

On June 30, 2010, Andrea Lyon presented a Motion to Withdraw as Counsel representing Casey Anthony.[59] Linda Kenney-Baden withdrew in October 2010. Both cited travel costs as a barrier in continuing to represent Anthony.[60]

Brad Conway, the attorney representing Casey Anthony’s parents, withdrew in mid-August 2010, citing allegations in a defense motion that he received special treatment in reviewing records. Conway claimed these allegations were false, but that this now made him a witness in the case, which forced him to withdraw.[61]

Criminal trial

Jury selection began May 9, 2011, at the Pinellas County Criminal Justice Center in Clearwater, Florida, because the case has been so widely reported in the Orlando area. Jurors were brought from Pinellas County to Orlando.[62] Jury selection took longer than expected and ended on May 20, 2011, with twelve jurors and five alternates being sworn in.[63] The panel contains nine women and eight men. It has been estimated that the trial will take about two months, during which the jury is being sequestered to avoid influence from information available outside the courtroom.[64]

The trial began on May 24, 2011, at the Orange County Courthouse, with Judge Belvin Perry presiding. In the opening statements, prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick described the story of the disappearance of Caylee Anthony day-by-day. The defense, led by Jose Baez, presented its claim that Caylee drowned accidentally in the family’s pool on June 16, 2008, and was found by George Anthony, who then covered up Caylee’s death. Baez also alleged that George Anthony had sexually abused Casey since she was 8 years old. Baez also claimed that Casey’s brother Lee had made sexual advances toward Casey and was even given a paternity test to see if he was Caylee’s father.[65]

The prosecution alleges an intentional murder and is seeking the death penalty against Casey Anthony.

Miss California (at 8-to-1) tops Miss USA odds field; Miss Nevada 25-to-1

To say Miss California USA Alyssa Campanella was in a rush to make this year’s pageant is to belabor the obvious.

As Campanella offered Tuesday during an OPI Products appearance at Michael Boychuck’s salon Color at Caesars Palace, she drove herself to the pageant.

She drove a Mazda CX-5, to be specific, and made the trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in 3½ hours. It was late at night and early in the morning and, well, she was in quite a hurry.

We can’t say if Campanella’s enthusiasm for the pageant (and, evidently, driving) is the reason Wynn Las Vegas Executive Director of Race and Sports Johnny Avello made her the odds-on favorite to win Sunday’s Miss USA Pageant, to be broadcast from Planet Hollywood’s Theater for Performing Arts at 9 p.m. on KSNV Channel 3 (tape delayed from the 6 p.m. live show).

In reasoning his 8-to-1 posting (for entertainment purposes), Avello noted that Campanella is Italian and hails from Manalapan, N.J. (she was even the first runner-up in that state’s Miss Teen New Jersey contest in 2007). Possibly, if Campanella does not win the pageant, a stint on a Bravo reality TV show could be in the offing.

Next in line in the Top Five on Avello’s odds sheet (again, for entertainment purposes) is Miss Alabama Madeline Mitchell at 11-to-1, followed by Miss South Carolina Courtney Hope Turner (12-to-1), Miss Hawaii Angela Byrd (14-to-1) and Miss Arizona Brittany Dawn Brannon (15-to-1).

As for Miss Nevada Sarah Chapman, she’s with a group of three contestants (Miss Idaho Erza Haliti and Miss Missouri Hope Driskill) at 25-to-1. That’s in the upper-third of favorites.

Hit this link for the full odds sheet furnished by Avello.

A liberal Democratic congressman who came under fire for a lewd photo that briefly appeared on his Twitter account over the weekend told CNN Wednesday that he did not post the image.

Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner spoke to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer a day after a contentious exchange with reporters in which he refused to directly answer any questions about the picture.

On Wednesday he said he had hired a law firm to look into the matter. But he declined to directly answer whether he appeared in the photo.

“Photos can be manipulated. Photos can be of one thing and changed to something else. We’re going to try to get to the bottom of what happened,” he said. The photo showed the lower body of a man wearing underwear.

A conservative blogger who broke the story has called for a full investigation of what he said was either the hacking of a congressman’s account or something Weiner wants to hide.

But Weiner told CNN he did not think such steps are necessary to deal with what he said was internet spam, an issue that many Americans face.

“Just because it happened to Congressman Weiner on his personal account doesn’t mean that the taxpayers should pay for an investigation,” he said. “I’m going to turn it over to some people who are going to give me advice on what to do next.

“This seems like it was a prank to make fun of my name, the name Weiner. It happens a lot,” he added.

Asked whether he was protecting anyone, Weiner replied, “Yes, I’m protecting my wife, who every day is waking up to these insane stories that are getting so far from reality. You know, we’ve been married less than a year.”

He also declined to say what he had written in direct messages to Twitter followers.

“I’m not going to get into how I communicate with people on social media. There was nothing … inappropriate,” he said.

An e-mail that Twitter sent to members of Congress Wednesday lists several online security tips, according to a copy of the e-mail CNN obtained. The message does not specifically mention the photo posted on Weiner’s page, but notes that questions about account security have surged recently.

“Some of you inquired today about the security of Twitter accounts,” Twitter’s Adam Sharp wrote. “While we won’t comment on individual accounts, news reports of the past few days are a good reminder of the importance of actively protecting your account credentials.”

Weiner on Tuesday told reporters he wasn’t interested in talking about the issue any more, saying he already made statements over the Memorial Day weekend after the photo turned up on his Twitter account Friday night.

In a heated exchange with reporters, he repeatedly dodged direct questions about the photo.

“If I were giving a speech to 45,000 people, and someone in the back threw a pie or yelled out an insult, I would not spend the next two hours of my speech responding to that pie or that insult. I would return to the things that I want to talk about,” Weiner said in response to a question about whether he sent the lewd photo to a Seattle woman.

He also refused to say why he hasn’t asked law enforcement to investigate if in fact his account was hacked, as he has said it was.

Despite repeated efforts by reporters, Weiner did not directly answer questions about the photo.

In earlier comments, when asked if the photo was of him, Weiner deflected the question.

“I’m not going to talk about this anymore,” he said, adding: “I’m going to get back to the conversation I care about,” including economic issues and what he calls a conflict-of-interest situation involving conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on the health care reform law. The New York Democrat is a leading liberal voice in Congress.

Asked several questions about the Twitter situation Tuesday, Weiner stuck to his message.

“I understand you’re doing your job, but I’m going to go back to work now,” Weiner said at one point. When asked if he was concerned about being hacked, he responded: “I’m going to return to working on the things I care about. I participated in the story a couple of days now, given comments on it. This is a distraction and I’m not going to let it distract me.”

When a reporter noted the distraction might go away if he answered the questions, Weiner answered: “I’m not convinced of that.

“I’m not convinced there’s any value of me talking about it,” Weiner said.

Asked again if he was the man in the photo, Weiner responded again that he had made previous statements and now it was time for him to get back to work.

On Wednesday, Weiner told CNN that he regretted “the way that I handled it yesterday and I’m trying to do a better job today.”

Previously, Weiner blamed the photo on a hacker who got control of his social-networking accounts and played a prank. Weiner’s spokesman, Dave Arnold, said Monday the congressman has retained an attorney to look into the situation.

No formal criminal investigation has been launched, which rankles Andrew Breitbart, whose conservative website biggovernment.com first reported the photo on Weiner’s Twitter account in connection with a tweet to a Seattle woman.

Breitbart, who has been involved in questionable tactics against Democrats and liberals in the past, told CNN on Tuesday that the case warrants further investigation.

“There’s something fundamentally different between a prank and a hack — a prank is innocuous, a hack is criminal,” Breitbart said, later adding he wanted a full investigation by the FBI and Capitol Police.

However, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said Tuesday he believed the situation was a harmless prank unworthy of further investigation.

“Twitter is not a very secure environment,” Toobin said, noting that information on the site can be unreliable “and doesn’t even come from the people it appears to come from.”

He added: “There’s a famous expression — don’t make a federal case out of it.”

22 month + 6 (6th of the month on Monday June 6th, 2011) = 28 = his personal day = Andrew Breitbart.

[Numerologically a person’s life lesson number stands for themself.  Andrew Breitbart was born on February 1st, 1969.  2 + 1 +1+9+6+9 = 28 = his life lesson.

Anthony Weiner’s 28 day indicates that Andrew Breitbart (whose life lesson number is 28) is significant to him on Monday June 6th, 2011.]

Rep. Anthony Weiner plans to resign from Congress in the wake of a “sexting” scandal with several women and lies he repeatedly told about it, a Democratic source with knowledge of Weiner’s plans said Thursday.

Weiner, 46, was considered a possible front-runner to succeed New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2013 until the revelation of his online communications, including lewd photos of himself he sent to women he befriended on Facebook and Twitter.

Last year, Weiner married Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton in the White House, Senate and now in the State Department. Former President Bill Clinton officiated the ceremony, and Abedin is pregnant with the couple’s first child.

First elected to the House in 1998 after his political mentor, then-Rep. Chuck Schumer, decided to run for the Senate, Weiner has been a reliable liberal voice for the solidly Democratic 9th District, encompassing parts of Brooklyn and Queens.

Weiner basically ran unopposed in 2006 and 2008 and won by 22 points over his Republican opponent in 2010, easily avoiding the GOP tidal wave that swept over the House.

As a politician, Weiner fully embraced social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, using the platforms to unleash his comedic take on life and politics.

He graduated from the State University of New York Plattsburgh and worked as an aide to Schumer from 1985 to 1991. A year later, he served on the New York City Council.

Throughout his time in office, Weiner has found himself drawn back to New York, the city he calls home. He ran unsuccessfully in the Democratic mayoral primary race in 2005. But most observers now feel the scandal has ruined any chance of his being elected mayor in 2013.

As Rep. Anthony Weiner made the bombshell admission Monday that he has sexted six women over the last three years, some of his Internet relationships began to reveal themselves, along with a mountain of racy correspondence they say they’ve received from the married Congressman.

26-year-old Meagan Broussard, a single mother from Texas, offered up photos, emails, Facebook messages and more from her month-long Internet affair with Weiner in interviews on Monday.

Broussard became the face of Weiner’s online transgressions when photos the Congressman sent her were posted to Andrew Breitbart‘s conservative site BigGovernment.com. She says she first connected with Weiner on April 20 when she commented he was “hot” on a YouTube video he posted to Facebook, and he reached out “almost immediately.”

They began exchanging flirty messages “within an hour,” she says, the nature of which was often sexual. “He was trying to get me to talk about myself sexually, and I said, straight up, I’m not an open book,” she wrote in a statement on BigGovernment.com. “He would ask me weird things, like ‘Did you miss me?’ I didn’t understand that–how could I miss someone I hadn’t met and didn’t know?”


Photos of Broussard that she sent to Weiner, obtained by ABC News.

Broussard later received numerous graphic images from Weiner’s private Yahoo email account, RockOh77@yahoo.com. The emails included a photo of a man’s erect penis as well as a shot of a shirtless man at a desk whose face – distinctly recognizable as Weiner’s – is only partially visible. In his emotional press conference, Weiner acknowledged the possibility that X-rated photos of himself could be floating around the Internet.

“I just thought at the time that there’s gotta be something, there’s way more girls out there. This is not just me,” Broussard told Fox News. “There’s just a lot more girls, that’s what I thought that the time, like this is something that’s regular, he’s done this all the time; he’s comfortable.”

Lisa Weiss, a 40-year-old blackjack dealer in Las Vegas, claims to be another of Weiner’s online mistresses. She told RadarOnline she sexted back and forth with Weiner for nine months, and that the Congressman used government resources to hide his bad behavior. She even claims he called her from his office for a 30-minute phone sex chat.

Though he called the situation a “prank” and himself a “victim” last week, Weiner admitted Monday that he did in fact tweet the infamous crotch photo at the center of the scandal, saying he meant to send it privately to an Oregon college student but accidentally send it publicly. “The picture was of me and I sent it,” he told reporters, later confirming that Broussard was one of the many women he sent lewd photos to.

“I didn’t think it was him,” Broussard told ABC, explaining her skepticism during their early correspondence. “I thought for sure, ‘why would someone in that position be doing this?'”

One of many flirty Twitter photos Anthony Weiner shared, obtained by BigGovernment.com

She says she is only coming forward to reveal her identity now because she was afraid the private messages she sent to Weiner would be published as he was investigated, and she didn’t want to be mis-represented.

“I thought I could just be private about it, but there’s no reason for me to hide,” she said. “I didn’t do anything wrong. I don’t know him. I’m just putting my story out there before anyone else tries to.”

“I’m not on a crusade to ‘take him down,'” she wrote in her statement. “I just acted to protect myself and my family.”

On Monday afternoon, in the Sheraton Hotel’s New York West ballroom, it felt, at times, like there were two press conferences happening at once. One featured the spectacle of a teary-eyed and emotionally wrenched Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) apologizing for his online indiscretions. The other showcased a combative Andrew Breitbart doing his best to hijack the moment.

The conservative media provocateur spoke before, after and during Rep. Weiner’s admission of sending sexually charged emails to six different women.

It was supposed to be Weiner’s press conference — so why was Breitbart on the stage? He had decided to attend, he told the scores of assembled press corps members, partly because his hotel was “coincidentally” located three blocks away.

But, Breitbart also noted, “I’m here to watch myself be vindicated.” He attempted to turn Weiner’s press conference into a battle in his ongoing war against the so-called mainstream media, criticizing outlets that included Salon and The Daily Kos.

No one from Weiner’s office pre-screened the press at the sometimes-chaotic news conference, which was held with about an hour’s advance notice. At one point, before Weiner had taken the stage, someone from the crowd — it was difficult to tell if they were a member of the media or just an onlooker — asked Breitbart to break from a press huddle he was holding on the side of the ballroom and walk up to the podium at the front of the room set aside for Weiner.

“If he’s paying for this I find this to be a tad rude,” Breitbart said, and then went ahead, at 3:58 p.m.

Weiner had scheduled his conference to start at 4 p.m. When people tuned in, though, they saw not the Congressman, but Breitbart, who took questions for approximately 13 minutes before leaving the podium. Fox News reported that Weiner’s aides ran down the hall to inform him that Breitbart was there.

Breitbart defended Big Government’s reporting on Weiner, as well as on past stories, saying his website “didn’t get into conjecture.”

He expressed particular ire toward the online magazine Salon, and claimed that Weiner was “complicit” in a media campaign blaming Breitbart for the whole debacle — and thus owed the media entrepreneur an apology.

“Given the fact that Congressman Weiner made much of last week about trying to blame me, and much of the left-wing media tried to make last week about blaming me, including claiming that I outed the name of the girl in Seattle that he sent the tweet to, which is false, and also claiming that I was the hacker, I felt that I needed to set the record straight,” he told Fox News in a phone interview.

Just when you thought the Weinergate situation couldn’t get any worse, apparently, per TMZ, it can.

ginger lee.jpgThe site reported very early this morning: “Weiner and former porn star Ginger Lee exchanged scores of sexual emails over a long period of time.  When the underwear scandal broke on May 28, Lee began receiving calls from the media, and Weiner was more than happy to help her control the situation … by lying. On June 2, Weiner emailed Lee, “Do you need to talk to a professional PR type person to give u advice?  I can have someone on my team call. [Yeah, my team is doing great. Ugh].

“It’s unclear if Weiner’s PR team is from his Congressional staff.  If so, Weiner could run afoul of House Ethics Rules [and] the law.”

WHO IS GINGER LEE?

Weiner has said he did not use government resources to pursue his hobby of hitting on chicks via Twitter and Facebook, and that he “welcomes” the Ethics Committee investigation ordered up yesterday by House Minority Nancy Pelosi.

When the Weiner story started coming to light in the conservative blogosphere, as our Alison Gendar noted on Sunday, it “sparked curiosity about why Weiner followed a bunch of good-looking young women on Twitter, including some college students and porn star Ginger Lee. He said he dropped Lee once he learned who she was. The rest were a random selection of politicians – friends and foes – and ordinary citizens who asked to follow him first.”

Lee, whose film credits include “Sweet As Candy” and “Legal At Last #4,” even got a custom-tailored statement from Weiner to send out to nosy reporters, TMZ said — complete with a misspelling for that authentic touch.

The statement Weiner suggested read: “I have nothing to do with the situation involving Rep Weiner. I follow his twitter feed. And for a brief time he followed me. Much has been made of the fact that I have posted about my admiration for Rep Weiner and his politics. All I can say about that is that I’m a fan of his. Rep. Weiner sent me one short direct message thanking me for following him. I have never met Rep. Weiner and he has never sent me anything innappopriate (sic) …”

Lee has tweeted that she has (or maybe had) “Weinermania” and that she wanted to get intimate with the congressman — something he swears never happened with any of the women he flirted with on the web.

Several women have already come forward in the media to say they received explicit photos, texts and phone calls from the playful pol.

Wait until the wife reads this!

Just when you didn’t think it could get worse, new X-rated text messages were made public today where Rep. Anthony Weiner got down and dirty with one of the women he had befriended on Facebook — even telling her that he was prepared to travel to Nevada to bed her.

In a series of dirty chat messages dating back to Sept. 17, 2010, Weiner wrote to 40-year-old Lisa Weiss — a Nevada blackjack dealer who went back and forth with Weiner on Facebook for more than a year — that he was interested in meeting her.

“i’m ready for a vegas trip. truth telling during the day. got a night plan for us?” Weiner wrote, according to a transcript of 220 messages posted on RadarOnline.com.

U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner speaks to the media in New York Monday.
“haha..that was a very loaded questions! i’ve got all kinds of night plans for us! when are you coming?” she replied.

“dunno. make me an offer i can’t refuse,” Weiner shot back.

The horny Democratic lawmaker ended the sexting session by boasting about his penis size.

“you’d be surprised how big’,” he wrote.

The raunchy texts didn’t end there.

Two days later, Weiss wrote, “you are a naughty boy! i’ll have to wait to share all of the details till i meet you in person.

On Sept. 21, Weiss wrote, “oooohhh…i bet you look hot in tights! can i be your sidekick? get your ass to vegas!!”

“stop staring at my weapon! I’m effecting the vegas trip. this whole reelection thing is keeping me tied up,” Weiner replied.

“i cat wait to meet you in person! and i’ll stare at your weapon if i want to, dammit! I understand this reelection stuff may take some time, but i really feel that my needs are waayyy more important! what is kinda funny is that i was looking at my fb page for something and i had posted that i wanted to bang you like a month ago! i think it was after you called [Sen. Joseph Lieberman] a pr–k!” she wrote.

Weiner and Weiss texted nearly every day — and most of the time it was dirty.

On Sept. 25, after not communicating for a few days, Weiner wrote, “where did my favorite dirty facebooker go? i’m getting kind of addicted to you.”

“okay…what the hell happened to you> i was enjoying our fb love affair..where’d you go? are you fb cheating on me?” Weiss wrote.

On Nov. 19, after Weiner ignored her messages, Weiss wrote, “where u been? fighting the good fight for my country? send me a message! I miss you.”

Two months later, on Jan. 20, Weiner wrote: “baby where have YOU been? how are you?”

“i have been here…just waiting for you to come and visit me in vegas when you are done saving the country from the evil republicans!” Weiss replied.

In March, the Facebook relationship got intense again after Weiner sent Weiss more pics of himself.

“Whoa, looks like I am wanna ride it?” Weiss wrote.

“hard for me?” Weiner replied.

“you like me big and fat,” said Weiner.

“only ur c–k,” she replied.

The texts come a day after a sniffling and “deeply ashamed” Weiner ‘fessed up on Monday to spending the past three years exchanging steamy online messages and sex-fueled phone chats with six women — sending some of his most tawdry sexts after marrying his high-powered wife last year.

Weiner acknowledged that he had engaged in inappropriate contact with six women over the course of three years through social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook and occasionally over the phone.

He said he had never met or had a physical relationship with any of the women and was not even sure of their ages.

Weiner also said he had never had sex outside of his marriage. He married Huma Abedin, who is tasked with accompanying Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on diplomatic globetrotting missions, last July.

Weiner said over and over during a news conference Monday that he had made “terrible mistakes” and done “a very dumb thing” for which he alone bore responsibility.

After Weiner and the women exchanged X-rated messages for months — the entire time of which Weiner was married — Weiss wrote on June 1 that he “owed” her for keeping their steamy Facebook sessions a secret.

“u owe me big time for keeping this all quiet…i am defending u to the death on every blog and to everyone….telling everyone u would never send dirty messages to women.

“i know u haven’t been on here since u were hacked but i NEED to talk to u…someone contacted me about u…call me or something.”

The scandal began more than a week ago when a conservative website reported that a photo of a man’s crotch had been sent from Weiner’s Twitter account to a college student in Seattle.

For days, Weiner claimed that he hadn’t sent the photo and that he was the victim of a hacker. But Weiner caused confusion when he said that he couldn’t say with “certitude” that the underwear shot was not a picture of him.

The scandal escalated Monday when the website, BigGovernment.com, run by conservative activist Andrew Breitbart, posted photos purportedly from a second woman who said she received shirtless shots of the congressman.

The site said the pictures were in a cache of intimate online photos, chats and email exchanges the woman claimed to have.

By all accounts, Huma Abedin, the wife of Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-New York), has been unwittingly pushed into the spotlight following her husband’s admission on Monday that he sent lewd photos to women he had met online.

Abedin, who’s 34, was noticeably absent at the press conference when a tearful Weiner, 46, confessed to the inappropriate relationships but also said that he and his wife “have no intention of splitting up over this.”

So just who is Huma Abedin?

Known as “Hillary Clinton’s secret weapon,” Abedin began working for the secretary of state as an intern in 1996, before the first lady herself became a focus of attention as a bystander in the Clinton-Lewinsky sex scandal.

Since then, the Michigan-born but Saudi Arabia-raised Abedin has ascended the ranks, with positions as a personal aide and advisor to then Senator Clinton as well as “traveling chief of staff” during her presidential campaign. She currently serves as a deputy chief of staff to Sec. Clinton. She was named this past fall to Time magazine’s “40 Under 40” list of New Civic Leaders, where the profile referred to her as Hillary Clinton’s “shadow.”

Abedin, who speaks Arabic fluently (her father, who passed away in 1993, was of Indian descent and her mother, a professor in Saudi Arabia, is from Pakistan), is a practicing Muslim. Her husband, who’s Jewish, has been known to fast with her during Ramadan.

She’s also known for her impeccable style, favoring designers like Marc Jacobs and Prada. Oscar de la Renta, a friend, designed her dress for her wedding to Rep. Weiner last summer

In a 2007 New York Observer profile (it should be noted that Abedin declined to be interviewed for it) then Hillary Clinton press secretary Philippe Reines called Abedin “one in a million,” but conceded “that would mean there are 5,999 others in the world just like her, and there simply aren’t.”

He continued:

“She is truly one of a kind, one in a billion. We are all in awe of her poise, grace, judgment, intellect and her seemingly endless reserve of kindness, patience and energy.”

Sunday May 29th, 2011

A hundred years is a long time. How long? When the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race was first held in 1911, the RMS Titanicwas still under construction in Ireland, Orville and Wilbur Wright were touring the country and showing folks their newfangled “aeroplane,” and Yale University had America’s best college football program.

The racing machines that will tour the 2.5-mile rounded rectangle located at the crossroads of 16th Street and Georgetown Road in Speedway, Indiana during this year’s Indianapolis 500 are a long way removed from the Marmon Wasp that Ray Harroun drove to victory in the first Indy 500 at a whopping 74.602 mph average speed. By comparison, Canadian Alex Tagliani drove his No. 77 Bowers & Wilkins Dallara-Honda to the top spot in qualifying with a four-lap average speed of 227.472mph, which is fast enough for a commercial airliner to get airborne.

This year is the centennial of what is known (and trademarked) as the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, although not the 100th running of the event due to a hiatus brought on by World War II. The race is an annual American tradition that transcends the boundaries of its sport, much like the Kentucky Derby, the Super Bowl and the Masters. With 2011 being the 100th anniversary of the first race, race organizers expect an extra level of attention for the event to go along with over a quarter-million race fans in attendance – still the largest single-day sports gathering in the world.

Those extra eyes will have lucked into seeing some of the toughest competition the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has seen in decades. Although the tagline created for this year’s event – “The Most Important Race in History” – seems a little egregious, there is no doubt that it will be one of the most exciting and unpredictable Indy 500s in decades. The IZOD IndyCar Series, the sanctioning body that oversees the Indy 500, is overhauling the series’ race cars for 2012 with new bodies and new engines, meaning that there is a surplus of soon-to-be-obsolete 2011-vintage cars. That surfeit of machinery has opened the doors to a talent pool of drivers as deep as any All-Star team in any sport and closed the performance gap to mere fractions of a second.

Time trials for the Indy 500 were the ultimate proof of how razor-thin the margins were between success and failure. Tagliani’s four-lap average speed was only nine-hundredths of a second faster than New Zealand’s Scott Dixon, who will start in the middle of row one. Dixon actually ran out of fuel at the end of his fourth and final qualifying lap – proving that luck can be the residue of preparation.

For Tagliani, the pole win was doubly sweet, as it marked the first pole position at Indianapolis for Sam Schmidt Motorsports. Schmidt, a former IndyCar driver who was rendered a quadriplegic after a testing accident in 2000, has spent the intervening years balancing building a racing empire with dedicated philanthropy. With three cars bearing his stamp in the top-six qualifiers, Schmidt has emerged as a legitimate contender against the mighty Penske Racing and Chip Ganassi Racing powerhouse teams.

As is usual at Indianapolis, there were a myriad of other compelling human dramas that played out in qualifying: past Indy 500 winners Dan Wheldon and Buddy Rice qualifying in the first three rows in one-off efforts without full-season rides; local Hoosier favorite Ed Carpenter putting former driver Sarah Fisher’s machine into the Fast Nine qualifiers; defending Indy 500 and IZOD IndyCar Series champion Dario Franchitti running out of fuel on the third of his four qualifying laps; three-time race winner Helio Castroneves qualifying a dismal 16th; Swiss driver Simona de Silvestro qualifying a backup car in 23rd place on Pole Day, less than a day after a vicious practice crash that left her with second- and third-degree burns on her hands; fan favorite Paul Tracy defying an intensifying rainstorm and slipping and sliding his way to the fastest qualifying time of Bump Day; Briton Alex Lloyd putting it all on the line on the last of his three attempts and getting his Dale Coyne Racing car into the field.

Perhaps no drama was more intense during time trials than the one surrounding Andretti Autosport during last-chance Bump Day qualifying. With five cars attempting to make the field, only one of them – John Andretti, cousin of AA team owner Michael Andretti and racing in a one-off with NASCAR legend Richard Petty – qualified on Pole Day. During Bump Day, a rain delay threatened to send Danica Patrick home without a starting spot before the track was dried and she was able to put her car in the show. Mike Conway, who made international headlines with a horrifying late-race accident in the 2010 Indy 500, failed to make the race after winning the Grand Prix of Long Beach earlier this season. And Marco Andretti, grandson of Mario Andretti, had to bump his way into the field at the expense of teammate Ryan Hunter-Reay – forcing Andretti Autosport to resort to the controversial, though legal, fallback option of buying out 19th-place qualifier Bruno Junqueira’s race seat from A.J. Foyt to get Hunter-Reay and his sponsors back in the race.

What can be predicted for today’s running of the Indianapolis 500? Only that nothing is predictable. 100 years of history attest to the fact that nothing is decided until the twin checkers fly to end the race. Still, there are plenty of intriguing storylines to follow:

  • Can Helio Castroneves become the first foreign-born driver and only the fourth person in history to win four Indianapolis 500s?
  • Is this the year a female driver wins the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, with four women – Simona de Silvestro (23rd), Danica Patrick (26th), Pippa Mann (31st), and Ana Beatriz (32nd) – in the starting field?
  • Can Penske Racing and Andretti Autosport overcome their qualifying woes to challenge for the victory?
  • Will Sam Schmidt complete the Cinderella story and put one of his drivers’ faces on the Borg-Warner Trophy?
  • Is this the year a legacy driver – for instance, Marco Andretti or Graham Rahal – follows in his famous families’ footsteps to drink the milk in Victory Lane at Indianapolis?
  • Does a driver with diabetes – Charlie Kimball – have a shot to win the greatest single prize in American motorsports?
  • Will the new double-file restart rule – requiring cars to be lined up in two columns when returning to green-flag racing after a caution instead of single-file – cause issues on the racetrack?

As the hours, and minutes tick closer to the start of the 100th Indianapolis 500, so does the anticipation. On Sunday, people from around the world will descend on the famed Brickyard – enough to make the racetrack the second-largest city in Indiana – to share in the nostalgia and traditions, to sing “Back Home Again in Indiana,” and to watch thirty-three of the world’s top race car drivers take the green flag in eleven rows of three.

After that… who knows what will happen? No one knows – but the joy, as always, is in finding out.

DANCING WITH THE STARS - "Episode 1208" - The pressure mounted this week as five remaining pairs performed two individual dances, one ballroom number and one "Instant Dance" -- in which couples had to master a number to music they had been given for the first time after the show's broadcast had begun -- on "Dancing with the Stars," MONDAY, MAY 9 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET/PT), on ABC. (ABC/ADAM TAYLOR)CHELSEA KANE, MARK BALLAS, KYM JOHNSON, HINES WARD, TOM BERGERON, BROOKE BURKE, CHELSIE HIGHTOWER, ROMEO, KARINA SMIRNOFF, RALPH MACCHIO, KIRSTIE ALLEY, MAKSIM CHMERKOVKSIYFile:Dwts12.jpg

We’ve just passed the halfway point of Season 12 and what a season it’s been! A Twisted ankle, broken shoes, pro dancers stumbling in the ballroom and an ever-changing leader board of who’s in first place! The hits keep coming (and so do the misses) as the stars rehearse hard and dance harder in pursuit of the mirror ball trophy.

The weeks have been racing by. Right out of the gate there were some strong performances including Kirstie’s Cha Cha and Ralph’s Foxtrot—and some not so strong ones with ‘Psycho’ Mike Catherwood and Lacey Schwimmer the first couple eliminated after two weeks of dancing. Wendy and Tony’s low scores put them on the short list for elimination and, sure enough, they were sent packing the next week. Olympic champ Sugar Ray Leonard unfortunately, is not a champion on the dance floor as he and Anna Trebunsakaya were eliminated in Week 4. And although Petra Nemcova may be a survivor, she and Dmitry Chaplin didn’t survive their low scores. Their departure was in Week 5. And finally, WWE Superstar Chris Jericho brought some surprisingly elegant moves to the ballroom, but as the competition heated up, his Tango was not fluid, but instead “granite-like” according to the judges, and he was sent home fifth this season.

At the same time, many performers have improved dramatically. Romeo started the season a low-scoring underdog and has tied for first-place in Week 6. Even though Kirstie has suffered every mishap imaginable, she’s going stronger than ever, finally showing the promise of Week 1. These improvements have squeezed higher scores out of the judges … yes, even Len. The highest single score so far has a “28” awarded to both Romeo and Chelsea as each pair was awarded the first 10’s of the season. As their dancing skills continue to improve, will anyone get a perfect score of 30?

Chelsea Q&A

1. Why do you want to be on Dancing with the Stars? The first time I visited “DWTS,” the Jonas Brothers had invited me when they were performing as musical guests. There was such an energy backstage and I was mesmerized by the stunning costumes and skills of these incredible dancers. The producers approached me about doing the show then, but I was filming. Then throughout more seasons, I supported friends like Cody Linley and Kyle Massey and they loved every minute of it and I was again encouraged to give it a try. So I finally got the nerve to say ‘yes’ and I am beyond excited to have this experience. Life is a journey and I want to fill it with as many different adventures as I can. I want to be able to look back one day and say, “Yeah, that was me in that sexy costume… that was me being swept around the room by that handsome guy…” I know it will be a lot of hard work, but I can’t wait!

2. Which dance style do you think is most “you” ? I was lucky enough to travel to Argentina where doing the Tango in the streets is a way of life. I think the Tango is such a sensuous dance. You almost feel like you’re watching a private moment between two people that you shouldn’t. I don’t know if it’s the the one that’s the most “me,” but I think it’s the one I’m looking forward to the most.

3. What do you think is your biggest handicap to overcome if you’re going to win? Nausea. I get extreme stage fright right before a curtain goes up. I’ll have to pick my wardrobe colors carefully, something that blends in with barf.

4. Do you have a “Dancing” hero (pro dancer? ) / Are any former DWTS stars an inspiration to you? Mikhail Baryshnikov. “The Turning Point” is a favorite movie of mine and I don’t think I have ever seen anyone top his skills. Michael Jackson was truly special, too. His moves never failed to excite and entertain. As far as “Dancing with the Stars,” I was so inspired watching Kyle Massey. Ballroom dancing was completely foreign to him, but he jumped in with complete enthusiasm and ended up in the finals! Since we work together on “Fish Hooks,” I usually see him in front of a microphone with a set of headphones keeping him confined to our little sound booth, so to watch him take over that big stage was awesome. I couldn’t be more proud of him.

5. Is there a particular dance/dance style that you most fear? That would be all of them. Even though I love to watch the art of ballroom dance, I am not familiar with any of these styles, nor have I ever had a dance partner or done anything like this, so my pro has his work cut out for him!

Kirstie Q&A

1.Why do you want to be on Dancing with the Stars? It’s my gateway to Broadway, baby……or hell……time will tell.

2. Which dance style do you think is most “you” ? Latin dances… because I’m sort of a West Side Story ho at heart.

3. What do you think is your biggest handicap to overcome if you’re going to win? Learning how to dance correctly.

4. Do you have a “Dancing” hero (pro dancer? ) / Are any former DWTS stars an inspiration to you? Gene Kelly all the way- sexiest man to ever step ball change…and Edyta- hottest pair of Polish legs to step foot on U.S. soil. When I’m dancing Latin, I’m going to pretend I’m Edyta. When I’m doing the jive, I’m Lacy. I’ll be pretending I’m Cyd Charise if I’m requested to do modern dance- ooh maybe that’s on So You Think You Can Dance sorry…& when I’m waltzing… I’m a gay man in a gown.

5. Is there a particular dance/dance style that you most fear? Quick Step- it’s just a little too……quick.

Hines Q&A

1. Why do you want to be on Dancing with the Stars? Because it is a prestigious and classy reality show that the entire family can watch and it looks extremely challenging. I am always up for a good challenge and would love to see what I can do in a field completely foreign to me. Besides, if Emmitt and Jerry can do it, so can I.

2. Which dance style do you think is most “you” ? Probably rhythm and blues, if this is such a style, but I wouldn’t really consider myself a dancer by any means.

3. What do you think is your biggest handicap to overcome if you’re going to win? Based on what I have seen of the show, juggling my footsteps with my posture. I would say remembering to keep my posture is most likely going to be the biggest handicap for me.

4. Do you have a “Dancing” hero (pro dancer? ) / Are any former DWTS stars an inspiration to you? Michael Jackson. Former DWTS stars inspiration? Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice

5. Is there a particular dance/dance style that you most fear? Salsa.

Jersey Shore is a reality television series on MTV that follows eight housemates spending their summers together, in the first season at the Jersey Shore, and the second at Miami Beach. The first season was filmed in August 2009 in a summer share in Seaside Heights but was also filmed in other towns such as Toms River, Neptune and Atlantic City, New Jersey. The show debuted amid large amounts of controversy regarding the use of the words “Guido/Guidette”, portrayals of Italian-American stereotypes and scrutiny from locals because the cast members were not residents of the area. The theme song featured in the opening credits is “Get Crazy” by LMFAO.

Following the success of the first season, MTV announced in January 2010 that a second season consisting of 12 episodes had been ordered and would air that summer. It would follow all of the first season cast as they escape the cold northeast and find themselves in Miami. The second season premiered on July 29, 2010. On July 20, 2010, MTV announced that the entire cast, with the exception of Angelina, would return for a third season to be shot back in Seaside Heights, New Jersey and scheduled to air later. MTV has since exported the series to dozens of countries worldwide.

Premise

The show examines the lives of eight young cast members living and vacationing on the various resorts along the Jersey Shore, more specifically the town of Seaside Heights. In exchange for living and partying in the shore house, each member of the cast is required to work shifts at a local boardwalk t-shirt store. Failure to comply with the ground rules set by their boss, who owns the shore house in which the cast resides, results in termination and eviction from the shore house.

Episodes

Following the success of the first season, MTV announced in January 2010 that a second season consisting of 12 episodes had been ordered and would air that summer. It would follow all of the first season cast as they “escape the cold northeast and find themselves in a new destination”. The first half of second season was shot in the South Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach, Florida, in May 2010 and the cast were to relocate back to the Jersey Shore for the rest of filming. It was later determined that the production company had enough footage from the Miami shoot to fill the whole second season scheduled to premiere July 29, 2010, and would instead use the footage to be shot at the Jersey Shore for a third season.

On July 20, 2010, MTV announced that the entire cast, with the exception of Angelina, would return for a third season to be aired later. Season 3 will be shot back in Seaside Heights, New Jersey during the summer.

Despite initial announcements that Angelina will not be part of Season 3, on August 9, 2010, Angelina stated via Twitter that she will indeed be part of Season 3, despite the fact that it has already started filming.  However, on August 27, 2010 Angelina retracted her previous claims and stated that she would not be part of season 3. MTV has yet to comment on the extent of Angelina’s participation in season 3.

Other

Other merchandise relating to the show have also been released, including talking bobblehead dolls of the cast, a beach game set, a “Gym Tanning Laundry (GTL)” labeled sports bottle, as well as various T-Shirts.

Controversy

MTV received a significant amount of criticism from Italian American organizations for the show Jersey Shore, which premiered in December 2009. The controversy was due in large part to the manner in which MTV marketed the show, as it liberally used the word Guido to describe the cast members. The word Guido is generally regarded as an ethnic slur when referring to Italians and Italian Americans. One promotion stated that the show was to follow, “eight of the hottest, tannest, craziest Guidos,” while yet another advertisement stated, “[the show] exposes one of the tri-state area’s most misunderstood species… the GUIDO. Yes, they really do exist! Our Guidos and Guidettes will move into the ultimate beach house rental and indulge in everything the Seaside Heights, New Jersey scene has to offer.”

Prior to the series debut, UNICO National (which is the largest Italian American organization) formally requested that MTV cancel the show. In a letter to the network, UNICO called the show a “…direct, deliberate and disgraceful attack on Italian Americans…” UNICO National President Andre DiMino said in a statement “MTV has festooned the ‘bordello-like’ house set with Italian flags and red, white and green maps of New Jersey while every other cutaway shot is of Italian signs and symbols. They are blatantly as well as subliminally bashing Italian-Americans with every technique possible…” Around this time, other Italian organizations joined the fight, including the NIAF, the Order Sons of Italy in America and the internet watch-dog ItalianAware.

MTV responded to the controversy by issuing a press release which stated in part, “the Italian-American cast takes pride in their ethnicity. We understand that this show is not intended for every audience and depicts just one aspect of youth culture.” Since the calls for the show’s removal, several sponsors have requested that their ads not be aired during the show. These sponsors include Dell, Domino’s and American Family Insurance. Despite the loss of certain advertisers, MTV has not canceled the show. Moreover, the show has seen its audience gradually increase from its premiere in December 2009.

Parodies

Since the show’s release, the cast has been spoofed hundreds of times, whether through late-night talk shows, or on video-sharing sites like YouTube. An episode featuring several notable parodies were made into a special entitled Jersey Shore: Spoof’d, which aired on January 16, 2010, featuring a cast commentary highlighting internet and television spoofs that have sprung up as a direct response to the show. The program also the original cast audition tapes.

Several songs have been remixed to poke fun at the show and its characters, including “Tik Tok” by Ke$ha, “Empire State of Mind” by Jay-Z, and a spoof of “California Gurls” by Katy Perry entitled “Staten Island Girls”. Other online parodies have surfaced, such as a Super Mario Bros./Jersey Shore mashup entitled “Super Mario Bros: Jersey Shore”. The show’s characters have also been spoofed by many comedians, including Nick Kroll‘s character “Bobby Bottleservice” performing an audition tape for the show, and Bobby Moynihan‘s impression of Snooki on Saturday Night Live.

The cast has appeared in several episodes of Lopez Tonight, where they starred in spoofs of popular films such as The Hurt Locker, Inglourious Basterds, Precious, Avatar, and Up. The show’s cast also starred on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in a spoof of the Twilight Saga, entitled The Jersey Shore Saga: Friggin’ Twilight.

The webcomic Jersey Circus is a mashup of artwork from the newspaper comic strip The Family Circus and dialogue from Jersey Shore. It juxtaposes the innocent artwork of the comic with often adult dialogue from the show to parody both media phenomenon.

Snooki Arrested for Alleged Public Drunkenness | Nicole Polizzi

Friday July 30, 2010 04:15 PM EDT

Always outrageous, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi allegedly took things too far this time.

The petite reality star, 22, of Jersey Shore was being booked by the Seaside Heights, N.J., police department Friday after she was seen intoxicated in public, a police source confirms. Meanwhile, the cameras on her popular MTV reality show were rolling too.

Polizzi was expected to be charged with disorderly conduct, another source says.

“She didn’t hurt anyone or get in a fight,” says the second source. “She just needs to be in a drunk tank for two hours.”

A rep for the show declined to comment.

Edward Michael Grylls, nicknamed “Bear”, (born 7 June 1974) is a British adventurer, writer and television presenter. He is best known for his television series Born Survivor, known as Man vs. Wild in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. He is the youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest, doing so at age 23. In July 2009, Grylls was appointed the youngest ever Chief Scout at the age of 35.

Personal life

Grylls grew up in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland and Bembridge on the Isle of Wight. He is the son of the late Conservative party politician Sir Michael Grylls and Lady Grylls (née Sarah Ford). His maternal grandparents were Patricia Ford, an Ulster Unionist Party MP and Neville Ford who played first-class cricket. He has one sibling—an elder sister, Lara Fawcett, a cardio-tennis coach. In an episode of Man vs. Wild featuring Hollywood actor Will Ferrell, he said his sister gave him the nickname “Bear” when he was just a week old.

Grylls was educated at Eaton House, Ludgrove School, Eton College, and Birkbeck, University of London, where he graduated with a degree, obtained part-time, in Hispanic studies in 2002. He learned to climb and sail from his father at an early age. He earned a second dan black belt in Shotokan karate as a teenager. He now practices Yoga and Ninjutsu. He also became involved in scouting, beginning at age eight, as a cub scout. He speaks English, Spanish, and French. Grylls is Christian, describing his faith as the “backbone” in his life.

Grylls married Shara Grylls (née Cannings Knight) in 2000. They have three sons: Jesse, Marmaduke, and Huckleberry (born 15 January 2009 via natural childbirth on his houseboat).

In December 2008, Grylls suffered a broken shoulder while kite skiing across a stretch of ice during an independent expedition to climb a remote unclimbed peak in Antarctica. Travelling at speeds up to 50 km/h (30 mph), a ski caught on the ice, launching him in the air and breaking his shoulder when he came down.

Military reserve service

After leaving school, Grylls considered joining the Indian Army and spent a few months hiking in the Himalayan mountains of Sikkim and West Bengal, Assam. From 1994 to 1997, after passing United Kingdom Special Forces Selection, he served in the part-time United Kingdom Special Forces Reserve, with 21 Regiment Special Air Service, 21 SAS(R), as a trooper, survival instructor and Patrol Medic. He claims that he served in North Africa twice. In 1996, he suffered a freefall parachuting accident in Kenya. His canopy ripped at 1,600 feet (500 m), partially opening, causing him to fall and land on his parachute pack on his back, which partially crushed three vertebrae. Grylls later said: “I should have cut the main parachute and gone to the reserve but thought there was time to resolve the problem”. According to his surgeon, Grylls came “within a whisker” of being paralysed for life and at first it was questionable whether he would ever walk again. Grylls spent the next 18 months in and out of military rehabilitation at Headley Court before being discharged and directing his efforts into trying to get well enough to fulfil his childhood dream of climbing Mount Everest.

In 2004, Grylls was awarded the honorary rank of Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Naval Reserve.

Everest

On 16 May 1998, Grylls achieved his childhood dream (an ambition since his father gave him a picture of Everest when he was eight) and a record, as the youngest Briton, at 23, to summit Mount Everest, just eighteen months after breaking his back. However, James Allen, an Australian/British climber who ascended Everest in 1995 with an Australian team, but who has dual citizenship, beat him to the summit at age 22. The feat has since been surpassed by Jake Meyer and, at age 19, by Rob Gauntlett.

Grylls’ expedition involved nearly four months on Everest’s southeast face: From his first reconnaissance climb on which he fell in a crevasse and was knocked unconscious, regaining consciousness to find himself swinging on the end of a rope, to the weeks of acclimatisation climbs involving climbing up and down the South Face, negotiating the Khumbu icefall (a frozen river), the Western Cwm glacier, and a 5000 foot wall of ice called the Lhotse face, to the gruelling ascent with the ex-SAS soldier Neil Laughton, involving climbing for hours in the night, that took him past extreme weather, fatigue, dehydration, last-minute illness, sleep deprivation and almost running out of oxygen inside the death zone where air is three times thinner than at sea level.

To prepare for climbing at such high altitudes in the Himalayas, in 1997, Grylls became the youngest Briton to climb Ama Dablam, a peak described by Sir Edmund Hillary as “unclimbable”.

Other expeditions

Circumnavigation of the UK

In 2000, Grylls, led the first team to circumnavigate the UK on a personal watercraft or jet ski, taking about 30 days, to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). He also rowed naked for 22 miles in a homemade bathtub along the Thames to raise funds for a friend who lost his legs in a climbing accident.

Crossing the North Atlantic

Three years later, he led a team of five, including his childhood friend, SAS colleague, and Mount Everest climbing partner Mick Crosthwaite, on the first unassisted crossing of the north Atlantic Arctic Ocean, in an open rigid inflatable boat. Battling force 8 gale winds, hypothermia, icebergs and storms in an eleven-metre-long boat through some of the most treacherous stretches of water in the world including the Labrador Sea, the Denmark Strait, and the stretch made famous by The Perfect Storm, Grylls and his team were just barely able to finish the journey from Halifax, Nova Scotia to John o’ Groats, Scotland. He was awarded an Honorary commission in the Royal Navy as a Lieutenant-Commander for this feat.

Paramotoring over Angel Falls

In 2005, Grylls led the first team ever to attempt to paramotor over the remote jungle plateau of the Angel Falls in Venezuela, the world’s highest waterfall. The team was attempting to reach the highest, most remote tepuis.

Dinner party at altitude

In 2005, alongside the balloonist and mountaineer David Hempleman-Adams and Lieutenant Commander Alan Veal, leader of the Royal Navy Freefall Parachute Display Team, Grylls created a world record for the highest open-air formal dinner party, which they did under a hot-air balloon at 25,000 feet, dressed in full mess dress and oxygen masks. To train for the event, he made over 200 parachute jumps. This was in aid of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and The Prince’s Trust.

Paramotoring over the Himalayas

In 2007, Grylls claimed to have broken a new world record by flying a Parajet paramotor over the Himalayas, higher than Mount Everest. Grylls took off from 14,500 feet, 8 miles south of the mountain. Grylls reported looking down on the summit during his ascent and coping with temperatures of −60 °C . He endured dangerously low oxygen levels and eventually reached 29,500 feet, almost 10,000 feet higher than the previous record of 20,019 feet. The feat was filmed for Discovery Channel worldwide as well as Channel 4 in the UK.

While Grylls initially planned to cross over Everest itself, the permit was only to fly to the south of Everest, and he did not traverse Everest out of risk of violating Chinese airspace.

Longest indoor freefall

Grylls, along with the double amputee Al Hodgson and the Scotsman Freddy MacDonald, set a Guinness world record in 2008 for the longest continuous indoor freefall. The previous record was 1 hr 36 mins by a US team. Grylls, Hodgson, and MacDonald, using a vertical wind tunnel in Milton Keynes, broke the record by a few seconds. The attempt was in support of the charity Global Angels.

Northwest Passage Expedition

In August 2010 Bear Grylls is leading a team of five to take an ice-breaking rigid-inflatable boat (RIB) through 2,500 miles (4,000 km) of the ice strewn Northwest Passage. The expedition is intended to raise awareness of the effects of global warming and will raise money for children’s charity Global Angels.

Media

Grylls entered television work with an appearance in an advertisement for Sure deodorant, featuring his ascent of Mount Everest. Grylls has been a guest on television programs, including Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Attack of the Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Harry Hill’s TV Burp. Grylls recorded two advertisements for Post’s Trail Mix Crunch Cereal, which aired in the US from January 2009. He also appeared as a distinguished instructor in Dos Equis’ Most Interesting Academy in a webisode named “Survival in the Modern Era”. He appeared in a five-part web series that demonstrates urban survival techniques and features Grylls going from bush to bash. He also has marketed the Alpha Course, a course on the basics of the Christian faith. Warner Bros. asked Grylls to appear in its remake of the film Clash of the Titans.

Grylls is a bestselling author. Grylls’ first book, titled Facing Up, went into the UK top 10 best-seller list, and was launched in the USA entitled The Kid Who Climbed Everest. About his expedition and achievements climbing to the summit of Mount Everest. Grylls’ second book Facing the Frozen Ocean was shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award 2004. His third book was written to accompany the series Born Survivor: Bear Grylls. (Released in America in April 2008 to the Man vs. Wild Discovery television show) It features survival skills learned from some of the world’s most hostile places. This book reached the Sunday Times Top 10 best-seller list.

He has a series of children’s adventure survival books titled: Mission Survival: Gold of the Gods, and Mission Survival: Way of the Wolf. His latest book is an extreme guide to outdoor pursuits, titled Bear Grylls Outdoor Adventures.

Escape to the Legion

Grylls filmed a four-part TV show in 2005, called Escape to the Legion, which followed Grylls and eleven other UK “recruits” as they took part in a shortened re-creation of the French Foreign Legion‘s basic desert training in the Sahara. The show was broadcast in the UK on Channel 4, and in the USA on the Military Channel. In 2008, it was repeated in the UK on the History Channel.

Born Survivor/Man vs. Wild

Grylls hosts a series titled Born Survivor: Bear Grylls for the British Channel 4 and broadcast as Man vs Wild in Australia, Canada and the U.S.A., and as Ultimate Survival on the Discovery Channel in Europe, Asia, and Africa. The series features Grylls dropped into inhospitable places, showing viewers how to survive. The second season premièred in the US on 15 June 2007, the third in November 2007, and the fourth in May 2008. Grylls is currently filming the sixth season in 2010.

The show has featured stunts including Grylls climbing cliffs, parachuting from helicopters, balloons, and planes, paragliding, ice climbing, running through a forest fire, wading rapids, eating snakes, wrapping his urine-soaked t-shirt around his head to help stave off the desert heat, drinking urine saved in a rattlesnake skin, drinking fecal liquid from elephant dung, wrestling alligators, field dressing a camel carcass and drinking water from it, eating various “creepy crawlies” [insects], utilizing the corpse of a sheep as a sleeping bag and flotation device, free climbing waterfalls and using a bird guano/water enema for hydration. Grylls also regales the viewer with tales of adventurers stranded or killed in the wilderness.

In some of the earlier episodes, Man vs. Wild / Born Survivor was criticized by some sources for misleading viewers about some of the situations in which Grylls finds himself. Discovery and Channel 4 television subsequently pledged production and editing transparency and clarification related to the criticism.

Worst Case Scenario

Grylls’ latest project is titled Worst Case Scenario and airs on Discovery in the USA. It is based on the popular books of the same name.

Chief Scout

On 17 May 2009, The Scout Association announced Grylls would be appointed Chief Scout following the end of Peter Duncan‘s five year term in July 2009. He was officially made Chief Scout at Gilwell 24 on 11 July 2009 in a handover event featuring Peter Duncan in front of a crowd of over 3,000 Explorer Scouts. He is the tenth person to hold the position and the youngest Chief Scout since the role was created for Robert Baden-Powell in 1920.

Charities

Many of Grylls’ expeditions and stunts have raised money for charitable organisations. Grylls is an ambassador for The Prince’s Trust, an organisation which provides training, financial, and practical support to young people in the United Kingdom. He is also vice president for The JoLt Trust, a small charity that takes disabled, disadvantaged, abused or neglected young people on challenging month-long expeditions.

Global Angels, a UK charity which seeks to aid children around the world, were the beneficiaries of his 2007 attempt to take a powered para-glider higher than Mount Everest. Grylls’s attempt to hold the highest ever dinner party at 25,000 feet was in aid of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, and launched the 50th anniversary of the Awards. His attempt to circumnavigate Britain on jet skis raised money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. Grylls’ Everest climb was in aid of SSAFA Forces Help, a British-based charitable organisation set up to help former, and serving members of the British Armed Forces, and their families and dependents. His 2003 Arctic expedition detailed in the book Facing the Frozen Ocean was in aid of The Prince’s Trust. His 2005 attempt to para-motor over the Angel Falls was in aid of the charity Hope and Homes for Children. Grylls is continuing his fundraising work for Global Angels in August 2010 by undertaking an expedition through the Northwest Passage in a rigid inflatable boat.

Other work

Outside of TV, Grylls sometimes works as a motivational speaker. Grylls has his own outdoor survival clothing range produced by British manufacturer Craghoppers.

Manute Bol, one of the tallest pro basketball players to ever grace the courts, died today of complications from Stevens Johnson syndrome, according to the Huffington Post. He was only 47 years old.

Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a very rare disease that targets the mucous membranes and skin, causing them to become extremely inflamed and painful. It usually begins with flu-type symptoms, followed by very painful blisters and a reddish-purplish rash that spreads until the top layer of your skin dies and falls off.  It is usually caused by an allergic reaction to certain medications or another infection such as the flu, diphtheria, typhoid or hepatitis.

Bol became ill with the disease in May after going to his home country of Sudan to help fight corruption and build a school. His kidneys had shut down completely and he had gone 11 days without eating when he finally returned home and was hospitalized. Sadly, it appears now he did not get help in time and it cost him his life.

Bol is survived by his wife and a newborn daughter whom he may never have even been able to meet because she was born while he was in Sudan and visitors to his hospital room were restricted because of the infection.

Manute Bol            October 16th, 1962

16 (born on the 16th of the month) + 21 (u is the 21st letter of the alphabet) + 20 (t is the 20th letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) = 62

So from ages twenty-seven to fift-four he had the numbers 16 (born on the 16th of the month), 46 (the sum of the fourth, fifth and sixth letter of the name) and 62 (16+46=62) going on.

16 = Shocks.  Suprises.  Expect the unexpected.  From out of nowhere.  A bolt out of the blue.  A shock to the system.

46 = Stature.  Height.  Tall.

62 = Restrictions.

So when his number (62 (the ruler of his ages twenty-seven to fifty-four)) came up, that’s when he got live/experience what he was here to live/experience.  So, unfortunately, this was his day.

Anthony Bryan Hayward CCMI (born 21 May 1957) is the Chief Executive of oil and energy company BP Group, taking over from John Browne, Baron Browne of Madingley on 1 May 2007.

Life and career

Hayward gained a first class geology degree from Aston University in Birmingham followed by a PhD from the University of Edinburgh.  Joining BP in 1982, with his first job as a rig geologist in Aberdeen, he quickly rose through the ranks in a series of technical and commercial roles in BP Exploration in London, Aberdeen, France, China and Glasgow. Hayward first came to Lord Browne’s attention during a leadership conference in 1990 in Phoenix, Arizona. As a result he was made Browne’s executive assistant.

In 1992, Hayward moved to Colombia as exploration manager and became president of BP’s operations in Venezuela in 1995. In August 1997 he returned to London as a director of BP Exploration. He became group vice president of BP Amoco Exploration and Production as well as a member of the BP group’s Upstream executive committee in 1999.

Hayward was appointed BP group treasurer in September 2000 where his responsibilities included global treasury operations, foreign exchange dealing, corporate finance, project finance and mergers and acquisitions. Hayward became an executive vice president in April 2002, and Chief Executive of exploration and production in January 2003.

In 2009, Hayward was awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Science from University of Edinburgh.

Replacement of Lord Browne

In light of safety and resultant production issues in Alaska and the report on the explosion at the Texas City refinery, Peter Sutherland, BP’s non-executive chairman, accelerated the process for replacing Lord Browne, bringing the timetable forward from end-2008 (when Browne would be 60, and nominally forced to retire under BP’s rules) to July 2007. Hayward, having been termed CEO designate by both internal and media commentators, came to the fore amid the competition, including Robert Dudley, chief executive of TNK-BP, the company’s Russian joint venture, and John Manzoni, head of refining and marketing.

On 18 December 2006 in the run-up to replace Lord Browne as Chief Executive of BP Group, the Financial Times reported that Hayward had criticised BP’s management at an internal management meeting, in the wake of a blast at the firm’s Texas City refinery that killed 15 people and injured more than 170 others.  Hayward made the comments at a town hall meeting in Houston: “We have a leadership style that is too directive and doesn’t listen sufficiently well. The top of the organisation doesn’t listen sufficiently to what the bottom is saying.”

On 12 January 2007 it was announced that Hayward would replace Lord Browne as BP Chief Executive.  In preparation for Hayward’s take up as Group CEO, on 2 February Andy Inglis was appointed managing director of the BP Group, and succeeds Hayward as chief executive of BP’s Exploration & Production (E&P) business.

Hayward was appointed to the Chief Executive position with immediate effect on 1 May 2007, after Lord Browne resigned following the lifting of a legal injunction preventing Associated Newspapers from publishing details about his private life.

BP pays Hayward an annual salary of £998,000 and in 2008 his bonus was £1,496,000.

Negotations with Russia’s Igor Sechin

In 2008 Tony Hayward had private meetings with Igor Sechin, a top figure of Russian military and security services. The two negotiated on BP’s deals with Russia.

Deepwater Horizon oil spill

On 20 April 2010, an explosion occurred on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, operated by BP. 11 people were killed in the blast and oil began to leak from the ocean floor at a rate variously estimated to be between 5,000 and 100,000 barrels per day. Hayward, and BP in general, initially downplayed the spill, stating on 17 May 2010 that the environmental impact of the Gulf spill would likely be “very very modest” and calling the spill “relatively tiny” in comparison with the size of the ocean.  By 27 May, Hayward had apparently changed his assessment, calling the spill an “environmental catastrophe” in an interview with CNN.

Hayward has stated that his job might be at risk as a result of the spill, saying “we made a few little mistakes early on.”  Hayward received criticism for various statements he has made during the spill, including telling a camera man to “get out of there” during a photo-op on the shores of Louisiana.  On 30 May, Hayward told a reporter “we’re sorry for the massive disruption it’s caused to their lives. There’s no one who wants this thing over more than I do, I’d like my life back.”  Hayward was widely criticized for the comment and United States Representative Charlie Melancon (D-La.) called on Hayward to resign in the wake of this comment.  He later apologized for the comment on BP America’s Facebook Page.  On 31 May, Hayward disputed claims of huge underwater plumes of oil suspended in the Gulf, as had been reported by scientists from three universities.  Hayward said there was “no evidence” that plumes of oil were suspended under the sea, and that because it is lighter than water any plumes seen are just in the process of rising to the surface. A chemist from Louisiana State University agreed with this assessment.  Still other scientists have suggested that the manner of expulsion of the oil from the well and the use of dispersants may have led to an emulsion situation in which the oil is suspended in water for some time.

On 5 June the Daily Telegraph reported that Hayward sold approximately one third of his shares in BP a month before the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded.  The shares subsequently fell in value by 30%, although the Telegraph stated: “There is no suggestion that he acted improperly or had prior knowledge that the company was to face the biggest setback in its history.”  In an interview on NBC on 8 June, President Barack Obama said that Hayward “wouldn’t be working for me after any of those statements”, referring to the remarks Hayward made following the spill.

Other positions

Hayward was a member of the Citibank advisory board, from 2000 to 2003.  Hayward is presently senior independent non-executive director of Corus Group, appointed in April 2002, and a non-executive director of Tata Steel. Hayward is a committee member of Audit, Nominations and Health, Safety and Environment.   Hayward was appointed a Companion of the Chartered Management Institute in September 2005.

Personal life

Hayward is married with two children, and lives near Sevenoaks, Kent.

numerology and astrology for James Van Praagh

James Van Praagh claims to be a medium. He has written several best-selling books on spirituality and spirit communication, which have been translated into over 50 languages.

In the 1995 NBC television series The Other Side, Van Praagh was introduced as the first American medium ever to perform readings on the air, and quickly became the series favorite[citation needed]. Howard Rosenberg, the Los Angeles Times television critic, dubbed Van Praagh’s performances “spectacular.”

In December 1997, Van Praagh became the first medium to appear on Larry King Live to promote his first book, Talking To Heaven. From 2002 to 2003, he hosted a syndicated daytime talk show entitled Beyond With James Van Praagh, which is still seen around the world in syndication. He subsequently partnered with CBS to produce several TV-movies and mini-series based on his life and experiences, including Living With The Dead and The Dead Will Tell.

He developed and is currently the co-executive producer of the television series Ghost Whisperer on CBS and occasionally appears as a special correspondent for the CBS television series The Insider and Entertainment Tonight.

Early life and career

Van Praagh was born in Bayside, New York and is the youngest of four children. Raised Roman Catholic he attended seminary at the age of 14; however, he has described himself as experiencing spiritual phenomena from a young age that eventually drew him away from conventional religious practice.

He graduated from San Francisco State University, majoring in Broadcasting and Communications, and subsequently moved to Los Angeles. It was there that he first discovered an interest in metaphysics[1] and began working as a medium following a prediction by another medium who suggested it was his destiny.[2]

Van Praagh built his early career performing private readings and quickly graduated to wider audiences with a series of audiotapes, books, and eventually the television appearances that gave him national exposure.

Career as a medium

On an episode of the radio show Loveline Van Praagh said his first reading came in first grade. He claims to have told his teacher her son had been hit by a car, but was OK and had only suffered a broken leg. The teacher told him to sit down, but a few minutes later the principal told her that her son had, in fact, been in an accident, and broken a leg.

Van Praagh claims that through his mediumistic abilities he receives messages from spirits and feelings about their presence that provide “detailed evidential proof that a loved one survived death.”[2]

In 2002, he hosted his own daytime talk show, Beyond with Van Praagh,[3] in which he gave readings to audience members.

His work continued to inspire his own brand of successful television shows with CBS and produced the miniseries Living With The Dead and The Dead Will Tell, and the CBS drama Ghost Whisperer.

Van Praagh also hosts regular seminars and workshops to assist others in developing spiritual awareness.

Personal life

On the Larry King Live episode on May 26, 2009, it was revealed that Van Praagh was in a same-sex marriage.

Criticism

Critics of Van Praagh accuse him of using the mentalism technique of cold reading to simulate psychic powers.[4][5] They point to several incidents in which Van Praagh’s claims have been wrong, such as when he suggested to the parents of the abducted Shawn Hornbeck that the boy’s body might be found in a railroad car.[6] Hornbeck was found alive four years later, having been abducted but not killed, and the kidnapper was not a railroad plant worker as Van Praagh had suggested.[7] Van Praagh has responded by asserting that his messages are often vague and hard to interpret and sometimes he mistakes their meaning.

His Abilities

His very natural, easy-going style would lead you to believe that James Van Praagh is chatting with a friend on the telephone, not communicating messages from the grave. James is a survival evidence medium, meaning that he is able to bridge the gap between two planes of existence, that of the living and that of the dead, by providing evidential proof of life after death via detailed messages. “I’m clairsentient,” he explains, “which simply means clear feeling. I feel the emotions and personalities of the deceased. I am also clairvoyant,” he adds, clarifying that, “the first is feeling, the second is seeing, very much like Whoopi Goldberg in the movie, Ghost.” The true essence of the messages are the feelings behind the words. James is an expert on this subject, since he has been in touch with those feelings most of his adult life. “The spirits communicate by their emotions. No words exist in the English language, or any other for that matter, which can describe the intense sensations.”

Personality traits come in as well. If a person was talkative while alive, he will come through with plenty to say. James also relays physical traits and death conditions as evidence. “If I convey recognizable evidence along with even a fraction of the loving energy behind the message, I consider the reading successful.”

James’ public popularity began during his appearances on the NBC talk show The Other Side. The show concentrated on paranormal issues, and James became the favorite guest and resident expert on the subject of life after death. Even Howard Rosenberg, the Los Angeles Times distinguished television critic, dubbed James “spectacular”.

Through the years his message of hope has touched a great many more people due to his television appearances on such shows as Oprah, Larry King Live, Dr. Phil, A&E Biography, Maury Povich, 20/20, and 48 Hours. His unique paranormal experiences during the past twenty-five years have seen him author best-selling books, create meditation programs and development videos, teach mediumship classes, conduct seminars to sold-out audiences, and produce successful television projects.

 

Early Life

James was born in Bayside, New York, and is the youngest of four children. An average child, he remembers having a tremendous fascination with death. He was raised Catholic and served as an altar boy, entering the seminary at the age of fourteen. It was there that his interest in Catholicism ended and his sense of spirituality began. There are no schools or training that could prepare James for his unusual vocation. Indeed, his ability to communicate with the dead arose out of his…well…life. This belief was affirmed by an astonishing encounter that he had when he was only 8-years-old. The young boy was praying for God to reveal Himself to him, when an open hand appeared through the ceiling of James’ room emitting radiant beams of light. Incredibly, he recounts, “I wasn’t scared. It was actually very peaceful.”

Graduating from public high school, he continued to pursue his studies and later graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in Broadcasting and Communications. You could say that he ended up working in Communications, just in a different capacity. After graduation, he moved to Los Angeles where he became involved in metaphysics and psychic phenomena. At 24, the promise of that outstretched palm so many years before was fulfilled.

 

Realizing The Gift

During his early days in Los Angeles, James was invited to attend a session with a medium, although he didn’t even know at that time what a medium was. Given that, he was understandably dubious when the medium informed James that he would be doing the same work within two years. “My first reaction was, I have enough trouble dealing with the living; why do I want to talk to the dead?” As James’ sensitivity increased, he began doing psychic readings for friends. During these readings, he began receiving detailed messages from the beyond. Though at first this seemed bizarre, the more he learned, the more he could not deny the fact that he had the gift to reach beyond the familiar plane of existence we call life. Today, James is recognized as one of the foremost mediums in the world.

Naturally, there remain skeptics about his abilities. James, however, is the first to say that he welcomes healthy skepticism, declaring, in fact, that he is a skeptic himself. “I believe that I am doing this, but I don’t believe that just anyone can do this. All mediums are psychics, but not all psychics are mediums.”

A psychic senses energy around the living people or objects. A medium not only senses energy, but is able to interface between the slower vibrations of the physical world and the much faster ones of the spirit world.

Though James is quick to point out that his gift does not provide insights into the future, he is able to provide detailed evidential proof that a loved one survived death. Surviving death may seem to be the supreme oxymoron, but he has a firm belief that we are all spirit beings, and that there is far more to our life than our life span.

Ultimately, James feels extremely fortunate to be a conduit of comfort, healing, and most importantly, love. “As a medium, I have never experienced anything but love and compassion and healing in my work,” he avows. “It is the love bond between people which allows me to make the connection between the living and the dead.”

 

Sharing The Understanding

James’ unique paranormal experiences during the past twenty-five years have been recorded in his best-selling books Talking To Heaven, Reaching To Heaven, and Healing Grief. His fourth book is the proclaimed Heaven and Earth – Making the Psychic Connection. In September 2003, teens were introduced to Looking Beyond: A Teen’s Guide to the Spiritual World. In November of that same year his book Meditations with James Van Praagh brought a new awareness to the meditation experience. His newest book, Ghosts Among Us, was released to critical acclaim in May 2008 and quickly landed on the New York Times Bestseller list and #1 on Amazon.com Bestseller list.

James shared his extraordinary gift on television with a daytime talk show of his own entitled Beyond With James Van Praagh. The show aired in the U.S. from September 2002 through September 2003 and is still showing in syndication in Europe, Australia and South America.

In April 2002, James began an ongoing relationship with the CBS network and produced an incredibly successful mini-series Living With The Dead, inspired by his first book Talking To Heaven. This mini-series starred Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen and was the highest rated show for CBS in two years. In October 2004 his second successful CBS project aired entitled The Dead Will Tell starring Anne Heche.

Currently James is Co-Executive Producing his first CBS primetime series Ghost Whisperer starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. This show premiered in September 2005 and has become the #1 Friday night drama for CBS. It began its third season in September 2007. It is currently seen in over 200 markets worldwide.

To assist others in spiritual awareness, James travels the world teaching mediumship development classes, hosting spiritual cruises, and conducting sold-out seminars. He takes pride in having built a web site that encourages spiritual learning, grief support and friendships through its many online communities, resources and activities.

“The books, CDs, seminars, classes, web site and television projects are ways to share my abilities and the message that our personalities do indeed survive death. My greatest satisfaction in doing this work is witnessing an instantaneous change in people,” states James about his work.

“When someone is alone and overwhelmed by grief, life seems over. But, when I’m able to help teach someone to make contact with a loved one, their grief and loneliness disappears and proper closure can take place.”

And so…”When a bright smile overcomes tears, it becomes a smile that can light up the world!”

 

What is a Medium?

One of the most common questions I am asked is what is the difference between a medium and a psychic. The term “psychic” is often used as a catchall phrase for anyone who works in the paranormal. We know what our five senses are – sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. But we have another sense that is equally as real as the other five. Often referred to as our sixth sense, psychic ability, or our intuition, is the gut feeling or hunch you have that you cannot logically explain. Everyone is psychic to some degree or another, but not everyone is a medium.

A medium is a psychic who has fine-tuned his or her extrasensory perception and can interface with the spirits in other dimensions. They are able to feel and/or hear thoughts, voices or mental impressions from the spirit world. A medium is able to become completely receptive to the higher frequency or energies on which spirit people vibrate.

Mediumship is much more involved than psychicism because a medium is opening him/herself to a discarnate energy. Mediumship itself can be broken down into two distinct categories. The first and most common type is mental mediumship, which is how I work with my abilities. I communicate with spirits while fully conscious. As the word mental denotes, this form of mediumship utilizes the mind – the intuitive mind, not the rational or logical part. This type of mental mediumship falls into several distinct types which are described as:

Clairsentience – (clear feeling) Perceive information by way of strong, emphatic feelings and emotions from spirit.

Clairvoyant – (clear vision) See with the mind’s eye objects, colors, symbols, people, spirits or scenes. These pictures are not visible to the naked eye and usually flash into the medium’s mind.

Clairaudient – (clear hearing) Perceive sounds or words from sources broadcasting from a spiritual realm.

Clairempathy – (clear emotion) Sense or “feel” within one’s self the attitude or emotions of another person.

Clairgustance – (clear tasting”) Discern the essence of a substance through taste from spirit.

Clairscent – (clear smelling). Smell a fragrance or odor coming from the spirit.

Clairtangency – (clear touching) This ability is commonly known as Psychometry. By holding an object or touching an area you perceive information about the article or its owner or history through the palms of your hands.

In my work I most often utilize the abilities of clairsentience and clairvoyance. In order to attune to the thoughts and feelings of spirit, I raise my vibrations higher through meditation and, in turn, spirit has to lower its vibrations somewhat.

The second type of mediumship is physical mediumship and it differs from mental mediumship. In physical mediumship the actually physical body is used to get information from spirit. In mental mediumship only the mind of the medium is utilized. Channeling is a well-known form of physical mediumship. A trance medium is another type of physical medium. A trance medium is someone who goes into a trance state to relay messages from the other side.

Certain individuals are more prone to mediumship than others. Usually they must develop mediumship skills over a period of time. In my book Heaven and Earth: Making the Psychic Connection I share personal techniques to help you develop your own natural psychic abilities.

Biography

American trance-medium who speaks to disincarnate spirits. Perhaps the most famed medium of the ’90s, he has appeared on many TV shows, including “The Other Side” and “Unsolved Mysteries,” and is a huge draw on talk shows and at expositions. Wherever he appears, hundreds gather hoping for a word of comfort, a shred of communication from their deceased loved ones. Though skeptics doubt that Van Praagh can talk to the dead, his message obviously touches a spiritual need in his followers.

Van Praagh (rhymes with frog) claims that he tunes in to the higher-faster-vibrating frequency of the spirit world where he not only communicates with the spirits but sees the heavenly world they inhabit, “a beautiful world with houses and mansions, forests and flowers.” He describes his abilities as clairsentience and clairvoyance.

His first book, “Talking to Heaven: A Medium’s Message of Life after Death” climbed to the top of the New York Times bestseller list. He made such a splash during his December 1997 appearance on the “Larry King Show” that he was booked for a repeat performance just three weeks later. His popularity grew so rapidly that Van Praagh had to discontinue most of his private practice, the 90-minute sessions for which he charged $250.00, although he kept some of his celebrity clients. In October of 1999, he played host on the “Voyages of Enlightenment,” a seven-day cruise for 150 clients who paid $2,800 to $6,000 for their accommodations. Continuing to capture public attention, he worked with NBC on a 2002 TV miniseries based on his life, “Living with the Dead” followed by “The Dead Will Tell” in 2004. In addition to his own daytime TV series “Beyond with James Van Praagh,” he has created several other media projects including CDs, tapes, and videos. Most recently he has co-produced a 2005-6 TV series “Ghost Whisperer” based on his experiences.

Raised in Queens, NY, Van Praagh was the youngest of four kids born to Alan, a retired Broadway stagehand and Regina, a homemaker who died in 1988. He acknowledges a tremendous fascination with death from an early age. His dad was a distant figure to him and his mom an alcoholic, so the boy took comfort in the spirit visions which he first saw one night when he was eight. Raised a Catholic, he claims that his interest in his religion ended, and his spirituality began, when he entered a junior seminary at age 14. Leaving after just one year, he attended public schools and graduated from San Francisco State University in 1982 with a major in broadcasting. For ten years he worked as an aspiring screenwriter doing menial jobs at the William Morris Agency and Paramount. In 1992, he paid his first visit to a medium, when the spirits said, “We’ll take care of you if you do your work.” He quit his job and became a full-time medium himself, soon attracting a clientele that included some of Hollywood’s finest. He never had to advertise but word spread like wildfire. He soon had his first TV booking plus a book contract. After his first book was published in 1997, his success was assured.

Van Praagh was married briefly and divorced in 1996. He continues to write books, lecture, and use the media to broadcast his message that there is life after death and that the dead communicate with the living.

North Node numbers

His North Node numbers are 68 and 72 because in his astrological natal/birth chart his North Node is in the third decan (last ten degrees) of the tenth house (using equal houses).  When his astrological birth chart is overlayed on the circle grid on page 264 of the book Numerology and the Divine Triangle by Faith Javane and Dusty Bunker, his North Node lands on the numbers 68 and 72.

68 = Learning.  Studying.  Education.  Student.  School.  College.  University.  Campus.  Scholar.  Academic.  Academia.  Library.  Educated.  Well learned.  Book smart.  Graduate.  Tutor.  Pupil.  Professor.  Educator.  Lettered.  PhD.  Highly educated.  Seminar.  Curriculum.  Syllabus.  Courses.  Classes.  Homework.  Research. 

72 = Frugal.  Thrifty.  Economical.  Financially conservative.  Millionaire mind.  Holding firm.  Traditional.  Conventional. 

So the combination of 68 and 72 means by educating people (in his case about mediumship (12 (his primary need (J+V+P = 12)))) he is able to become a millionaire.

The Other Side

“Then,” recalls Shoemaker, “he was on ‘The Other Side.’ ”

The NBC show was inspired by a Roper poll that found a striking number of Americans believed in flying saucers and other such phenomena–16% reported having had personal contact with aliens. So the show booked the full range of paranormal personalities: people who insisted they’d been abducted by spacemen, people who had goblins in their attics, people who claimed miraculous cures for diseases, people who survived near-death experiences, and so on.

One of the producers, Annie Azzariti, recalls how Van Praagh came on the radar screen: He called. In fact, he’d called before, after she did a segment on another show, “Unsolved Mysteries,” showcasing medium George Anderson, who had written a book called “We Don’t Die.” Van Praagh said that if she ever needed someone else for a spot like that . . . .

“I told him, ‘I don’t think we’re going to do another,’ ” Azzariti said. But when “The Other Side” was in development, he “somehow heard . . . and tracked me down.” Though she got calls from “a lot of nuts,” instinct told her to give this guy a tryout–a personal reading with her. He then began talking about how “my grandmother really liked that painting of the flower next to the bathroom.” Boom–he was on the air.

No guest drew a response anything like Van Praagh’s. From the moment he was put on in November 1994, “our phones were completely blocked there were so many calls,” Azzariti said. “Thousands of calls from all over the country.”

—————————————————————————————–

At first glance the horoscope of James Van Praagh is normal.  Yet the main individual characteristics are great wealth, public recognition, charisma,  intuition, unusual communications, and an exceptional interest in the spirits of the dead people.

When analyzing deeply a Horoscope is extremely important to realize and evaluate certainty the blend between the symbolisms of the Sun and the Moon. In fact, it describes the actual life energy that flows into the condition of life, working for the survival and the fulfillment of the personal needs.

In Praagh birth chart we are able to perceive that he born with a Sagittarius Moon-Virgo Sun blend. The Virgo Sun is placed at the eighth house and it also rules the 8 th house. The  stellium configuration located in this same house  provides me triple information  that puts him at a higher position than others.

Why?

The Plutonian influence over his personality  is crucial. Pluto besides being connected to one of the most significant point of any Horoscope, the Ascendant which is our personal house, the self-projection, the identidy, it  is as well conjoint the Sun ( !!:..). 

Interpretatively, this conjunction suggests a focus of the symbolisms of the two at the same position. In this case {Sun cj.Pluto} what is suggested is that conditions in life urged for a major change of perspective, usually through some overpowering  of life events, during a private consultation time.

The Southern hemisphere emphasis tells me that during his  early development he was pushed around, controlled or victimized by experiences in the world and if I were his astrologer I would ask him why there is no anchor although I suspect from where they come from…

The birth chart also denotes a Western emphasis. When this happens we can expect that the personal life is conditioned around Ego projection and justification to others, perhaps to the extent of leaving the Self behind. He needs to interact with others.

Frequently, the individual seems to be a pawn of fate, of chance, things “happen” all the time because of the constant interaction with others than through one’s own initiative.

The Virgo Sun-Sagittarius Moon has specific traits. It gives to the owner the mental deeply process- deep thoughts and concentration, deep emotionality, intensity- 8th house energies. Also, because of the Sagittarius Moon the personality is qualified with a particular need of adventure, romance and excitement into the life perspective. Someone with this link is challenged to get down to the bottom of things and to learn new ideas in order to be used later on for growth and recognition.

The Sun establishes a particular kind of energy in terms of its zodiacal sign and the Moon receives that specific energy into the process of the Moon’s sign. This blend is distributed throughout our personal system of needs, according to our lived experience to keep us alive and on the way to fulfillment.

The basic meaning of the 8 th house is others’ resources, self.worth and value, experiences and matters relating to death, sex along with the 5 th house. Mars being the Singleton within a Bucket formation and the handle of the bucket, it controls and dominates the action.

 His way of expression, the usual modality, is in a fixed mode –{8 planets} This mode has the connotation of organization, stolidity, rootedness, fixity, stability and solidarity.

On the other hand the faculty of communicating represented by Mercury symbolism is extraordinarily well situated. Thus, Mercury is conjoint the 29º Leo- Regulus degree bestowing him attributes similar to Venus or Jupiter connections. The planets here situated will be fortunate and likely to show success.

 In reality, Regulus is in fact one of the four royal stars. It is known as the “star of kings” and it is the most important of the four. It promises success, independence and when close to the luminaries, which is the case{cj the Sun} , the better qualities of the star will be visible.

It is also fundamental to realize that Mercury and the Sun are in mutual reception {<> notation}. This special connection between the two energies confers him illumination of intelligence.

I don’t want to finish this incredible Horoscope without mention you that if you observe the 90º Midpoint Pictures you will notice that he has AP (Aries Point)=Jupiter/Pluto. This terrific midpoint when situated at Aries Point promises and suggests that fortune and abundance of resources could likely be visible.

This is exactly what occurred at James Van Praagh’s life
