Question by none: How to become a “Ghost Hunter”?
I want to be a paranormal investigator. What (if any) majors would I have to take in college to be so? And what college has these said majors? What are the requirements? And if possible, I’d love it if you could give me a list of paranormal investigator businesses. Ideally, I’d love to one day be a part of the TAPS family. Thanks for your help.

Answer by michele
There are no actual “jobs” as paranormal investigators. It’s a tv show, kid – not a real occupation. Those folks are actors and people with real jobs who do the silly “ghost hunting” as a hobby.

It’s ENTERTAINMENT. Nothing more.

There are NO college majors that would “prepare” you for such a hobby. If you buy a camcorder and an EMF detector (check your local radio shack), you, too, could hang out your own shingle as a “paranormal investigator”. If you’re a good actress, you might be able to convince people to put on a show for them in their home to make them believe you’ve rid their home of some evil spirits.

Please don’t ask your college counselor about it, or they will laugh you out of the office.

Sorry to be the bearer of ill news,

Question by : Is there a way to get awakening skill in Monster Hunter Tri at a low level armor?
In Monster Hunter Tri, is there a way to get the awakening skill other than having lagiacrus+ armor or Alatreon armor?

Best answer:

Answer by MagicianTrent
You can gem your equipment for it, but the gems require parts from Lagi+ or Alatreon as well. But even that likely isn’t possible without using a really crappy weapon, as you’d need 3-slots on at least one piece of equipment, which isn’t possible on low-rank armors and can’t be found in a talisman that doesn’t come from a Timeworn Charm, which is only in late high-rank areas. And the gems require parts from Lagi+ and Alatreon anyway.

Question by : How do I get the awakening skill in Monster Hunter Tri?
I have Lagiacrus armor plus but it doesn’t have the awakening it supposed to. Why?

Best answer:

Answer by MagicianTrent
There are two ways to get a high-rank armor: Create it from scratch, or upgrade your existing low-rank version of it to high rank. The results of these two methods are not the same. When you upgrade an armor to high rank, it only changes the Defense value, leaving the Skill Points and Jewel Slots the same as the low-rank version. So to get Awakening from Lagi armor, you have to make the Lagi+ armor from scratch.

Question by Joseph: Monster Hunter Tri: Can someone answer these questions on awakening?
1. How do you know if a piece of armor has awakening on it?

2. If you awaken your weapon, is it permanently awaken or is it only awaken if you only have that piece of armor on with awakening on it?

Best answer:

Answer by Unkown3504
Awakening is an Armor Skill, So if you are wearing armor with the Awakening Skill, then your weapon will be awakened as long as you are wearing the armor. Some armors have the Awakening skills in them, but if not, then you must forge a decoration that gives you some +Awakening Skill, then find a charm that gives you More Awakening skill, to get any armor skill i think you have to have at least +10 of the skill. I hope i helped.

What do you think? Answer below!

Dr. John Dee An English 16th. Century Alchemist and Ghost Hunter

Edit Article |

Posted: Mar 19, 2011 |Comments: 0

English history is full of weird and wonderful characters and one of the most spooky characters was John Dee who was born in London on 13th July 1527 and died in 1608 and was a noted mathematician, Astronomer, Astrologer, Occultist, Navigator, Imperialist and consultant to Queen Elizabeth I. He devoted much of his life to the study of alchemy, divination and hermetic philosophy.

By the time of his death the whole of Europe new him as the Magician of Queen Elizabeth. His writings are said to have influenced Shakespeare and he frequently consulted mediums in his attempts to communicate with spirits. Dee had a large library of books on witchcraft, the occult and magic.

When Queen Elizabeth I ascended the throne, Dee was asked by Lord Dudley to name a propitious day for the coronation. On this occasion he was introduced to the queen, who took lessons in the mystical interpretation of his writings, and made him great promises, which, however, were never fulfilled. In 1564 he again visited the continent, in order to present his Monas hieroglyphica to the Emperor Maximillian, to whom he had dedicated it. He returned to England in the same year; but in 1571 he was in Lorraine, whither two physicians were sent by the queen to his relief in a dangerous illness.

Returning to his home at Mortlake, in Surrey, he continued his studies, and made a collection of curious books and manuscripts, and a variety of instruments. In 1578 Dee was sent abroad to consult with German physicians and astrologers in regard to the illness of the queen. On his return to England, he was employed in investigating the title of the crown to the countries recently discovered by British subjects, and in furnishing geographical descriptions. Two large rolls containing the desired information, which he presented to the queen, are still preserved in the Cottonian Library. A learned treatise on the reformation of the calendar, written by him about the same time, is also preserved in the Ashmolean Library at Oxford.

From this period the philosophical researches of Dee were concerned entirely with necromancy. In 1581 he became acquainted with Edward Kelly, an apothecary, who had been convicted of forgery and had lost both ears in the pillory at Lancaster. He professed to have discovered the philosopher’s stone, and by his assistance Dee performed various incantations, and maintained a frequent imaginary intercourse with spirits.

He began his experiments in trying to contact discarnate entities in 1581, mainly fuelled by strange dreams, feelings and mysterious noises within his home. On 25th May 1582 he recorded that he had made his first contact with the spirit world, through the medium of his crystal ball. This had taken Dee years of work to achieve, through studying the occult, alchemy and crystallomancy. Spirit contact would prove to be a major driving force behind Dee for the rest of his life.

Dee found contacting the spirits tiring, and started to employ gifted scryers so that he would be free to make extensive notes on the communications received. Dee had been working with a scryer called Barnabas Saul, until he had experienced some disturbing encounters, and could no longer see nor hear beings from the other realm, so in March 1582 Dee started to search for a work colleague.

Shortly afterwards Kelly and Dee were introduced by the Earl of Leicester to a Polish nobleman, Albert Laski, palatine of Siradz, devoted to the same pursuits, who persuaded them to accompany him to his native country.

They embarked for Holland in September 1583, and arrived at Laski’s residence in February following. Upon Dee’s departure the mob, believing him a wizard, broke into his house, and destroyed a quantity of furniture and books and his chemical apparatus. Dee and Kelly lived for some years in Poland and Bohemia in alternate wealth and poverty, according to the credulity or scepticism of those before whom they exhibited.

They professed to raise spirits by incantation; and Kelly dictated the utterances to Dee, who wrote them down and interpreted them.

Dee at length quarrelled with his companion, and returned to England in 1589. He was helped over his financial difficulties by the queen and his friends. In May of 1595 he became warden of Manchester College. In November 1604 he returned to Mortlake, where he died in December 1608, at the age of eighty-one, in the greatest poverty.

Aubrey describes him as “of a very fair, clear sanguine complexion, with a long beard as white as milk — a very handsome man — tall and slender. He wore a goune like an artist’s goune with hanging sleeves.” Dee’s Speculum or mirror, a piece of solid pink-tinted glass about the size of an orange, is preserved in the British Museum.

History of English Music Hall and Variety Theatre

One of the best shows I have seen was in London’s West end to see a Musical play about Sir Winston Churchill. The Special effects and drama was brilliant and Robert Hardy who played Winnie was excellent. Variety Theatre was popular entertainment that featured successive acts by singers, comedians, dancers, and actors. The form derived from the taproom concerts given in city taverns in England in the 18th–19th centuries.

The Mint originated over 1,100 years ago, but has functioned since 1975 as a Trading Fund, operating in much the same way as a government-owned company. The Royal Mint also manufactures and circulates coins for over 100 other countries, mints collectors’ coins, and produces military medals and civilian decorations for the British armed forces.
