He is a living magnet
Fifty five year old German national, Miroslaw Magola turns his body
into a magnet. With the help of his brain power he is able to manipulate
objects and stick them to his body.
He defies gravity, moving heavy items from the floor to his body and
then creates a force to keep them there.
Magola is a man with an unusual gift; he can lift objects off the
floor, transport them through the air and force them to stick to his
body - all using the power of his mind.
Claiming that his body is just like a living magnet, Magola says: "I
found out I could train myself to manipulate lifeless objects as I
studied for my degree in the early '90s," Magola said. "I have since
spent years perfecting the technique and exploring further into human
"I can defy gravity because I load myself with energy and - like
moving a limb - can make objects do as I wish, like a real-life magnet.
"I am determined to develop my unique powers further in the future,
and I'm currently working with telepathy and healing to see how
psychokinetic energy can be put to a use that will benefit mankind."
Although he has undergone numerous tests, Miroslaw's strange talent,
which he puts down to psycho kinesics, still remains unexplained by
The most amazing part of Miroslaw's powers is that he appears to be
able to control and develop them by constant practice and research.
Magola's powers may seem like something out of a comic book, with
many people struggling to comprehend his abilities - others flatly
refuse to believe him.
But the father-of-one refuses to be branded a 'fake' or 'cheater',
revealing that his superpowers could potentially be mastered be
Magola said: 'Magnetic people prove with mind power they are capable
of lifting objects of different materials off the floor without aid.'
One of Magola's main goals is to scoop a $1million prize - unclaimed
for five decades - set for anyone who can prove they have supernatural
The One Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge was launched by famed
magician and sceptic James Randi in 1964 for anyone who can show
evidence of faith-healing, telepaths, psionics, dowsing, precognitive
psychic friends with astral bodies, past life remembrance, or spectral
manifestations of any kind.
Sixteen-year-old sky diving girl falls 3,000ft and survives
When you are young its normal to do something daring! Maybe for the
thrill of it all.
It may be one of the reasons why a sixteen-year-old girl from Texas
agreed to the sky jump from a height of 3000 ft.
Makenzie has injured her liver, spine and shoulder
But the thrill and the experience ended up in horror!
Makenzie Wethington did the sky jump but unfortunately the parachute
did not open at the correct moment. The result was a free fall to death.
But fortunately she survived with only multiple injuries including her
liver, pelvis lumber spine in her lower back, shoulder blade and several
"I don't know the particulars of the accident, as I wasn't there. But
if she truly fell 3,000 feet, I have no idea how she survived," the
surgeon from Oklahoma said.
The teenager's parents had allowed her to take the jump but father
Joe has now said the skydiving company should not have allowed it. The
company involved has defended its decision, saying the father went up
with his daughter and was the first to jump.
Robert Swainson, instructor and owner of the company involved, said
Makenzie's parachute had opened as it should have done but she began to
spiral downward when the chute went up but not out.
He said skydivers were given instruction during a six-to-seven-hour
training session on how to deal with such problems.
Makenzie is expected to leave the intensive care unit soon, the
Witches are still hunted and tortured in remote Indian villages
Can you believe that "Witch hunts" still prevail in the twenty first
century? In history books we have read about witches being captured and
burnt at the stake in western countries.
Chuttney Mahato was attacked after mysterious deaths in her
village - she now helps fellow victims.
But in rural India especially in tribal areas witch hunt, although
illegal, are still reported.
Stories of women beaten, poisoned, paraded naked or forced to eat
human excreta are disturbingly common in remote Indian villages.
Sometimes these witch hunts deliberately target widows or women with
property in an attempt to take advantage of them, but other times they
are rooted in the religious beliefs.
Illness, poor harvest or just plain bad luck can sometimes mean only
one thing: a curse in the family.
In such situations villagers often consult an ohja or a witch doctor
who they believe has the power to undo evil spells and identify those
who supposedly placed the curse.
Sixteen years ago, Chhutney Mohato was stripped naked, beaten and
nearly killed after she was accused of being a witch in her village in
Eastern Jharkhand state.
She was forced to leave her home and abandoned all that she owned.
But Ramani, another woman living in a slum hamlet in the same state
was not so lucky.
After her husband's death from a mysterious disease she lived with
her mother and her 10-year-old child Sona in a one-room hut.
One night in January, Ramani and Sona were fast asleep when two
neighbours broke down the front door and dragged Ramani out of her bed.
Later Ramani's mutilated body had been dumped on the nearby rail
tracks. Her death was the result of being branded a witch.
Police in Jharkhand receive around five reports a month of women
denounced as witches, but nationally the figure is believed to run to
Today Chhutney Mohato runs a small organisation in eastern India that
helps women who have been lucky enough to survive the fate similar to
But most of those accused of witchcraft, however, are less fortunate,
they are commonly killed by mobs of villagers.
Can survivors of witch hunts in India change traditional beliefs to
stop this brutal practice?
