Optic Nerve: millions of Yahoo webcam images intercepted by GCHQ | World news Britain's surveillance agency GCHQ, with aid from the US National Security Agency, intercepted and stored the webcam images of millions of internet users not suspected of wrongdoing, secret documents reveal. GCHQ files dating between 2008 and 2010 explicitly state that a surveillance program codenamed Optic Nerve collected still images of Yahoo webcam chats in bulk and saved them to agency databases, regardless of whether individual users were an intelligence target or not. In one six-month period in 2008 alone, the agency collected webcam imagery – including substantial quantities of sexually explicit communications – from more than 1.8 million Yahoo user accounts globally. Yahoo reacted furiously to the webcam interception when approached by the Guardian. Optic Nerve, the documents provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden show, began as a prototype in 2008 and was still active in 2012, according to an internal GCHQ wiki page accessed that year.

PARAseek.com - The Paranormal Search Engine BlackListedNews.com Shadow people An artist's impression of a shadow person as a paranormal entity A shadow person (also known as a shadow figure, shadow being or black mass) is the perception of a patch of shadow as a living, humanoid figure, particularly as interpreted by believers in the paranormal or supernatural as the presence of a spirit or other entity. Many methamphetamine addicts report hallucinations of "shadow people", as a result of sleep deprivation. History and folklore The Coast to Coast AM late night radio talk show helped popularize modern beliefs in shadow people. The first time the topic of shadow people was discussed at length on the show was April 12, 2001 when host Art Bell interviewed Native American elder Thunder Strikes, who is also known as Harley "SwiftDeer" Reagan. Explanations Several physiological and psychological conditions can account for reported experiences of shadowy shapes seeming alive. In popular culture See also References
The Haunted Glenn Dale Hospital | Ghost Eyes - Ghost Eyes Glenn Dale Hospital was built in 1934 to serve as a tuberculosis sanitarium. Sitting on 210 acres in Prince Georges County, Maryland, the 23-building institution was once state-of-the-art, but has stood abandoned since 1982, when it was closed permanently due to concerns about the copious amounts of asbestos used in the construction. The main campus of Glenn Dale consists of a Children’s hospital building and main hospital building, which are connected by a series of underground tunnels and walkways. Exploration of the Glenn Dale Hospital grounds is a treacherous experience, and not only because the place is closed and trespassers are not suffered lightly. Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of exploration is the same aspect that led to the hospital’s closure: large amounts of asbestos. The haunted history of Glenn Dale Hospital is much like that of any other long-abandoned institution of similar size. For your own safety, please do not trespass on this property at anytime.
