Be open-minded, but not so open-minded that your brains fall out.

That quote is true. But you're not.

And pleaseeee ... new age ? really ... It's easy to label anything new age to discredit someone :rolleyes: There is nothing new about it all anyway

People are sooo closed minded here. It's unbelievable.

YES she is a fraud. So that means she is not a psychic. Only a very small number are the real deal.

Let me tell you, you will know when you meet one.

Sort of like believing in Santa Claus, right? You'll know the real one when you meet him. :laugh:

It is not closed-minded to require verifiable proof of something before accepting it as fact.

Let me guess, you watch Ghost Hunters on Syfy on a regular basis?

Presumably, if your father was "killed" (my condolences), as opposed to dying of natural causes, there is some sort of public record of his death (newspapers, internet.). Did you supply him with any information prior to the reading? (even your name on a application form.)

Anyway, if what he told you made you happy, then good for you. You are one of the lucky ones.

Was my "giant plastic pineapple" reading spot on?

He knew me as "Bailey". My middle name.

Yeah mate, Gympie, QLD.

I don't think you're is a fair comparison to what I experienced though.

I think Nashy either works for that "psychic" or he's really gullible. Had too good of a story, without any way to prove it.

If you turn to this kind of stupidity to get your answers of course you're going to get burned. People just need to start using their brains and turn to answers that have some rational grounding.

Not defending anyone here. I think Mrs Browne just guesses and is wrong most of the time. I personally would not trust her at all. However, being rational and having the mom use her brain would not have solved this either.

You act like being rational and using your brain is the solution to everything, yet it wouldn't have helped even if that were possible. When your daughter is missing you aren't going to think clearly and think rational.

Now, when you come out of your shell and stop living a sheltered life, maybe you will understand that.

Yeah mate, Gympie, QLD.

Yay! I'm gonna email this thread to the Amazing Randi and get my prize.

Anyway, as long as this guy didn't try to tell you that his was in communication with your late father, then I guess it is harmless fun.

Typical new-age non-rebuttal, which I will counter with this clich?.

Be open-minded, but not so open-minded that your brains fall out.

Most people on this forum have no idea what open minded means. It's like the James Randi Foundation, we will pay you blah blah blah amount of money to do something paranormal. Even if someone did, they would not receive the money. They would ask to prove it and then if you give them proof you still would not receive the money, it's a scam for free thought (there is always an agenda).

People believe what they want to believe and have no idea what having an open mind is all about. They will throw crap on a wall even if it doesn't fit to prove their point. I have been down this road before and it's filled with the sewage of human thought that isn't rational or logical because of pride and other issues.

I never have like Browne because she is an outright fraud though.

Well, it's not. It would have done nothing to help the girls own situation. It's not just some magical solution that provides every answer known to life. The mom would not have been rational anyway. Tired of hearing overrated answers that are not answers.

My point is that people on here think they have all the answers, but they don't. They just sit at their keyboards on their laptops and have no idea what "real life" is, that is my point to all of this and offering something like "rational thought would have saved the day" is just stupid.

Apparently many people used rational thought and used their brains and the girl wasn't found until now. Whoops, didn't save the day did it? A non answer is just that.

Rational thinking did save the day, as Amanda didn't kill herself in captivity. On the other side, a woman died as a result of losing her will of living, because another woman's opinion. A woman that thought she was so smart, that she could predict the future.

A psychic getting slapped, because his future prediction was off a bit. I bet all he saw for that day, was water.

More like survival thinking. Rational thought is hard when something traumatic is happening to you. Silva Browne is a fraud. Too many people on this forum don't get actual life. They hide behind their computers thinking they are intelligent, but most have never even been confronted with real life situations and it's painfully obvious.

So basically what you said is: "I know better than the rest, because my computer and keyboard is diffrent than theirs and I have bible quotes in my signature, so obviusly I know about suffering and what's really fake and real on this entire planet that existed only for 6000 years". Or did I read your argument wrong :rolleyes: ?

The same can be said about people who hide behind a poorly written story book and claim their invisible sky friend can fix everything.

I have never seen a giant plastic pineapple, where do I go to see one (not an image on google or so). Sure i could probably google or search where. Just saying I never saw one.

That's rich coming from you, you can't claim to be any different then anyone else on this forum. You dont know about anyone else's life experiences and do not have the authority to speak on behalf of anyone other then yourself.

Your complete ignorance is showing.

You clearly have studied nothing.

Studied what? I used to be into reading about the paranormal, UFOs, psychics, etc. I stubbornly believed in all that stuff for awhile, but when I made an honest attempt to be objective and read the rebuttals sceptics offered the bull**** melted away.

I don't feel like the world is any less interesting or awesome. I am glad I no longer waste time on that stuff.

I wrote it all down. The only thing he hasn't got right is that I would be working for someone called Steve.

Technically I do, as my state manager's name is Steve.

Anyway, you can say what you like, I'm not here to try an convince anyone that it's real. But my experience was spot on, and that's correct for the other two people I know who have been to him. I'm not talking about vague responses either.

I'm talking about the exact way my father was killed, the correct town, and the connection to other towns he lived.

What!? You'd work for someone with an incredibly common name!? I am blown away!

If psychics are real, why aren't they winning the lottery every week?

Here's something to think about: How come you never see a headline like 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?

I guess he's not doing bad if the only thing to go against him is getting said common name correct.

Like I said earlier. I am not trying to convince anyone, I'm just giving my experience, and one which I was skeptical about, and am convinced was real.

      Gartner: 30 million foldable phones will be sold in 2023
      by Paul Hill

      According to the analyst, Gartner, foldable phones are expected to account for 5% of high-end phones by 2023; that is around 30 million units. Several phone manufacturers first showed off their foldable phones during MWC 2019 and other events in February, however they have high price points and aren’t likely to become mainstream just yet.

      Discussing the forecast, Roberta Cozza, research director at Gartner, said:

      Before foldable phones really do take off in several years, Gartner predicts that manufacturers will continue to experiment with the foldable form factor in order to find the optimal layout which suits the needs of users. Gartner said that the user experience will need to be continuous and seamless across all of the foldable screens.

      In the same report, Gartner stated that the global device market (PCs, tablets, and phones) will see flat growth overall in 2019 with the downward trend in the PC market being expected to continue while the mobile phone market is expected to return to growth in 2020.

      IDC: Worldwide spending on 3D printing to reach $13.8bn this year
      by Paul Hill

      Image via Makerbot A new forecast produced by IDC suggests that worldwide spending on 3D printing will be $13.8 billion this year. This spending factors in hardware, materials, software, and services required for 3D printing, the new figure represents an increase of 21.2% from 2018. IDC expects the figure to grow to $22.7 billion by 2022.

      According to IDC, the biggest markets for 3D printing will be discrete manufacturing (53.8%), healthcare providers (13.1%), education (8.6%), professional services (6.5%), consumer (4.7%), and others (13.3%). The U.S. is expected to spend nearly $5 billion, Western Europe is expected to spend $3.6 billion, while China is expected to spend nearly $2 billion.

      Marianne D’Aquila, research manager, Customer Insights and Analysis at IDC said:

      IDC said that the printers themselves, and the materials, will make up two thirds of the worldwide spending, totalling $5.3 billion and $4.2 billion respectively in 2019. Services such as on-demand parts services and systems integration services will reach $3.8 billion this year.

      Microsoft wants AI to detect malware attacks on Windows PCs before they happen
      by Usama Jawad

      Microsoft's anti-malware tool, Windows Defender, is often touted by the company as Windows' primary line of defense against threats. The firm continuously updates it to make it more secure, and often cites its methodologies for this endeavor as well.

      Now, it appears that Microsoft is looking to utilize the powers of artificial intelligence to counter malware before it infects a Windows PC.



      Microsoft is hosting a competition on popular data science website, Kaggle, where it is "challenging the data science community to develop techniques to predict if a machine will soon be hit with malware."

      Participants will be provided with 9.4GB of anonymous data from 16.8 million real-world machines as a training set. Using this enormous dataset, data scientists will be tasked with developing a model that achieves the highest accuracy on the test data. $25,000 will be shared among the top five teams in the following way:

      1st Place - $12,000 2nd Place - $7,000 3rd Place - $3,000 4th Place - $2,000 5th Place - $1,000 As of right now, the top entry has achieved an accuracy rate of 68.9%, though this will likely improve before the competition closes on March 13, 2019.

      It is important to note that this isn't the first competition of its type hosted by Microsoft on Kaggle. Back in 2015, it offered the public a chance to win $16,000 in prizes using 0.5TB of training data in a malware classification challenge. Interestingly, the current contest is hosted by the Windows Defender ATP Research team in particular, which means that the findings of this competition will likely be used to improve Microsoft's own line of defense against malicious threats.

      Google adds match predictions to Premier League games following use in World Cup
      by Paul Hill



      If you’ve been watching the World Cup this summer you might have seen Google’s attempt to predict the outcome of matches by the 90-minute mark. Now that the World Cup is coming to an end Google has decided to continue testing the feature for Premier League matches which are played around the U.K.

      Google has not announced the win-draw-lose probability feature for the Premier League, which starts on August 10th, just yet but the feature is already live. It’s the only league in the U.K. that has the feature switched on, and seemingly the only league in Europe to have the feature too. Neither the French Ligue 1 or German Bundesliga have the feature switched on and the Italian and Spanish leagues have not yet announced their fixtures so it’s not possible to know if the feature will be enabled in those leagues.

      The probabilities that Google has produced have been a bit hit and miss over the duration of the World Cup, for example, yesterday it said England should win (43%) or there ought to be a draw (33%) - after 90 minutes, the match was a draw rather than a win for England. Going forward, it has Belgium with a 43% chance to win in the third-place playoff against England's (30%), and it says France should win the cup with 49% against Croatia’s 22% - it’ll be interesting to see how that one turns out.

      Bitcoin posts new exchange rate record, reaching $1,700
      by Paul Hill



      Earlier today, bitcoin reached a new high of $1,700, a 70% increase since the beginning of the year when it was at $997, and a $200 increase since last week. Some analysts think that the cryptocurrency is entering bubble territory and that it's on course for another correction but with the overall trend on the upswing.

      Willy Woo, a trader and bitcoin enthusiast, said:

      When bitcoin first reached $1,000 in 2013, there was a massive correction in the price. Woo believes that this time around the drivers of the rally are solid and therefore a pullback won't necessarily happen.

      Andrea Medri, CFO and founder of The Rock Trading, speaking with CoinDesk, said:

      As of the time of writing, the price is sitting at $1,686/€1,550/£1,304, which is fairly steady given today's news of reaching new highs.
