Ghosts Are Not Just for Halloween — They’re Here All Year Round

Parsippany, NJ (PRWEB) September 18, 2007

L’Aura Hladik, Founder & Director of the New Jersey Ghost Hunters Society and lecturer on the subject of ghosts and haunted places, maintains that ghosts and paranormal study are a year-round activity.

Halloween certainly captures the mainstream imagination with spooky ghost stories and horror film releases and rentals of the classics, but for paranormal investigators and researchers, it is a full time avocation,” L’Aura explains.

The New Jersey Ghost Hunters Society was founded by Hladik back in 1998 and today has 500 members both nationally and internationally. In addition to its three divisions’ monthly meetings, the NJGHS reaches the masses with its weekly free downloadable podcast called “The Deadline”.

As if being the great-granddaughter of one of the owners of the infamous wallets made from the skin of Antoine LeBlanc wasn’t enough, L’Aura finished out the 8th grade living with two ghosts in a rental home in Chatham Township, NJ. It’s only natural that she went on to ghost hunt officially starting in 1993 and today runs the largest paranormal investigating organization in the Garden State.

This Halloween season, as in the past, L’Aura will be presenting a PowerPoint show entitled “Paranormal Investigating: Capturing Ghosts’ Pictures and Voices”. This presentation is suitable for any age group and gives clear cut examples of how ghosts appear in picture form and how their voices, called EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) sound. L’Aura says, “Truthfully, Spielberg would never sell a ticket if he depicted the ghost in his movies as the way they typically show up: as an orb.”

The presentations are free and open to the public as follows:

Sept. 30 = Burlington County Library, 5 Pioneer Blvd., Westhampton, NJ – 2:00 p.m.

Oct. 16 = Washington Women’s Club, Church St., Washington, NJ – 7:30 p.m.    

Oct. 18 = Sayreville Public Library, 1050 Washington Rd., Parlin, NJ – 7:00 p.m.

Oct. 22 = Matawan Aberdeen Library, 165 Main St., Matawan, NJ – 7:00 p.m.

Oct. 24 = Washington Twp Public Library, 37 E. Springtown Rd, Long Valley, NJ – 7:00 p.m.

Oct. 26 = Cranford Public Library, 224 Walnut Avenue, Cranford, NJ – 8:00 p.m.

If your group or library would like to have this presentation, please contact L’Aura at her Evoice number 908-325-0140 or via email, laurah @ njghs.net

The NJGHS is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people experiencing paranormal activity with free of charge investigations as well as training its members in the standards and protocols of paranormal investigating.

When there’s Something Strange in the Neighborhood, Paranormal Investigators No Longer Worry about Who they’re Going to Call

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 01, 2012

For decades pop culture and folklore have generated stories relating to paranormal phenomena which helped cultivate generations of explorers investigating ghostly activity. With the latest update to Excelltech’s Paranormal Recorder, the hunt for communication from apparitions is as close as your smartphone.

According to developer Ed Williams, paranormal phenomenon is most often reported with abnormal electromagnetic fields. “The Paranormal Recorder uses raw, magnetic data from the device’s digital compass to trigger audio recording,” he said. “The electronic voice phenomenons, or EVPs, are caused by electromagnetic fluctuations, which reflect paranormal forces that occur during these communications.”

Originally released in March of 2009, Paranormal Recorder only records audio when the electromagnetic fields around the device fall outside normal limits. Just as a motion activated light helps detect possible intruders, the electromagnetic activator recorder helps the paranormal investigator detect a ghostly visitor. An entire night’s worth of recording can be reduced to a dozen minutes of audio that had high electromagnetic fluctuations associated with it.

Since the April 2011 release of version 3.11, users of Paranormal Recorder have uploaded more than 1200 possible EVP samples to the audio sharing SoundCloud. With the recent release of version 4.0 investigators and skeptics alike can further discuss paranormal issues on the apps Facebook page. “Paranormal Recorder gives ghosts the opportunity to communicate with the people on this side,” said Williams. “The data can be captured and downloaded for further analysis, bringing communication with the other side into the palm of your hand. You might say this app puts your finger on the pulse of paranormal activity.”

All you need is a device with the iPhone Operating System 4.0 or later and $ 2.99 to start downloading the next best thing to being there! Paranormal Recorder 3.11 is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category.

Excelltech, creator of the famous “Fake-a-Call” app, has designed over 30 applications for the iPhone as well as several titles for the Blackberry and Android platforms. The company is dedicated to utilizing mobile technology to deliver useful innovations and entertaining diversions. For more information on Excelltech please contact them online.
