Russell Targ is a physicist and author of several books on extra-sensory perception (ESP) and psychic abilities. As a senior staff scientist for Lockheed Martin he was one of the forerunners in developing peaceful applications of the laser, and he helped to launch an investigation into psychic abilities by the Stanford Research Institute in the 1970s-1990s. The project was known as Stargate.
Keith “Blue” Harary has a doctorate in psychology from Duke University and the Union Institute. Since the age of 17 he has worked extensively in studies of sensory-altering experiences, and those of personality and perception. In the early 1970s he was studying at Duke and living in the lab of the school’s Psychical Research Foundation for $35 a month. His background in psychical experimentation earned him an invitation to be a consultant in a classified program. The program was called Stargate.

Hey everybody! It’s me, Caely Rose Hibbits. I was born in Connecticut, but moved to a tiny town, Cedar Key, FL, when I was two.

The Girl Effect is an organization that goals to better the lives of young women all over the world extract themselves from the vicious cycles they so often are forced into. The Girl Effect helps young women, usually once they’ve reached the age of twelve, to stay in school. If they are able to stay in school, these girls have a better chance of avoiding child-marriages, giving birth to sickly children, falling into a life of prostitution to support her children and thus contracting and spreading the AIDS virus. The Girl Effect calls this cycle “The Ripple Effect.” This organization also aims to abolish what they refer to as the “Top Ten” buriers that prevent girls from growing into young women capable of supporting themselves and their families.

It was submitted in 1863 at what became the Salon des Refusés. Continue reading
