A Closer Look at Psychic Predictions

By Benjamin Radford

While going though files on psychics in my Buffalo, N.Y., office a few years ago, I came across a newspaper article listing annual psychic predictions--in and of itself, an unremarkable find. The article appeared in this very newspaper, and featured predictions from local psychics for the following year. What made this particular article interesting was the year being predicted: 2001, in an issue dated Jan. 11-17.

Odds & Ends

By Devin D. O’Leary

Dateline: Japan--An aquarium in Tokyo has turned to a Japanese inventor for a novel way to light a Christmas tree--using electric eels. Inventor Kazuhiko Minawa said it took him more than a month to devise a system that would effectively harness eel power. Two aluminum panels were eventually placed inside the eels’ tank to serve as electrodes. Cables attached to the panels supply the lights on a nearby tree with electricity. “If we could gather electric eels from all around the world, we would be able to light up an unimaginably giant Christmas tree,” Minawa told Reuters Television. The tree, which will stay illuminated until Christmas, is proving itself a popular attraction, drawing tourists from all over the country.

Letters

I was surprised to see Simon McCormack's column, “Transgender Transfixion," in the Dec. 6 issue of the Alibi [Thin Line]. While I lived in Arizona from 2001 to 2005 I had numerous media stories published concerning the transgender community. Yet after I moved to New Mexico in 2006, not one newspaper has paid any attention to my queries. This includes the Alibi, which I've contacted at least three times during the past two years with offers to provide an inside perspective on this community.
