This blog is designed to keep the general public abreast of the work being done at the California Center for Parapsychology and Paranormal Research.  In addition to my own research, I will be tracking interesting developments in the news.  

One recent event of note was Monday's press conference in DC:

Countries around the world have been declassifying UFO documents/files over the past few years.  Here is a brief listing of some of those nations:

BRAZIL
CANADA
DENMARK
FINLAND
FRANCE
MEXICO
NEW ZEALAND
PERU
RUSSIA
SPAIN
SWEDEN
UNITED KINGDOM
URUGUAY

Also, a number of formerly classified US files have been made public through the Freedom of Information Act.

What all this means is anyone's guess, and their are many out there with varying theories as to why and why now.  Needless to say, this is only the tip of the iceberg.  Many are heralding October 13, 2010 as a date to mark our calendars.  From a retired NORAD officer warning us earlier this month that  a global UFO display may take place on this date,

to world renown scientist, Stephen Hawking, telling us to beware any such impending extraterrestrial contact.
I'm taking a wait and see attitude for the moment.  And with October 13th just around the corner, it won't be much of a wait.  At least it's not a Friday.
