Intruduction:

Ghost a very common name in our life for being scared. Actually some of us often believe in ghosts and some of us don’t believe in this things. In our religion there is no such things like “Ghost” but in also there is something named “Ginne”. But all religious believe came into one point that-There is something, some says it can be the spirits.
So,here I gave some information about the unsolved matters……….

Ghosts of the Stanley Hotel

If you where staying at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado and turned to channel 42 of your guest-room television, you would be watching one of my all-time favorite movies: The Shining. Doesn’t matter what time of day or night, or year for that matter, it is always on. That’s not supernatural, of course- merely a nod to their role as the inspiration for Stephen King’s novel. Employees report hearing the commotion of a great party in the grand ballroom when there is no one there. Children can be heard playing in the halls when there are no children at all, and many guests have reported seeing ghostly figures in their rooms at night, merely standing, watching. The fourth floor seems to be host to the most amount of activity, and there is one ghost in particular, purportedly Lord Dunraven, the previous owner of the land the property was built on, who can be seen standing over the bed or looking out the window of room 407. He is widely blamed for any jewelry or valuables that have gone missing in the hotel over the years.

The Brown Lady
Raynham Hall

Raynham Hall in Norfolk, England, is home to the subject of one of the most famous ghost photos ever captured, the Brown Lady is named so because she appears in a rich brocade brown dress. She is widely believed to be Lady Dorothy Walpole, sister of Sir Robert Walpole, who married Charles, 2nd Viscount Townshend in 1713. She died under mysterious circumstances in 1726, and sightings of her began shortly after. Though reports of sightings have waned dramatically since the photo was taken in 1936, sightings before then had been reported by some fairly reputable sources. My favorite account is from a Major Loftus, who was staying at Raynham Hall in 1849. Retiring to bed one night, he and a friend named Hawkins observed a woman in brown brocade who vanished as Major Loftus approached her. Determined to confront the apparition, the next night he returned to she same spot and saw her again. He was horrified to see however, that when he looked into her face he saw only two black sockets where her eyes should have been. Unsettling to say the least!

The White Lady
Balete Drive

Oh, the ghosts of the Philippines! A Lady in White is undoubtedly the most common type of ghost anywhere in the world, and joins a laundry list of spirits in the Philippines for this story. I will say in research I have come across two accounts from locals of Quezon City, Philippines that say this is just a hoax, but I will stick with the majority opinion that there is something there. Believers report a woman in white with long black hair and her face either completely blank or obscured by blood standing in the middle of the road on Balete Drive. It is said you should avoid driving there at night – but if you do, make sure your back seat is full of passengers. Apparently it is in empty back seats that the White Lady will hitch a ride, spotted by the unfortunate driver in their rear view after they experience a dreadful ominous feeling.

Chloe and The Myrtles Plantation

Legend has it Chloe was a slave in the house of the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana who had a bad habit of listening at keyholes to the goings on of the residents. Caught one day in the act by the Master of the house, he lopped off her ear as punishment, forcing her to wear a green scarf over her head to cover the wound. As punishment, she baked a cake with oleander leaves, a common plant in the south that is immensely poisonous. Though the master of the house was her target, her victims became his wife and two daughters, who died in agony a couple days after eating the cake. Chloe fled the house and was lynched by field slaves on the plantation for the wicked light she cast on the rest of them.
Fortunately or no, there is no historical evidence to back up this story, just an intriguing photo. True or not (probably not), there are certainly plenty of other ghosts to keep you company, including a young girl frequently spotted in a mirror on the stairs, and another young girl who chants voodoo over people who dare to sleep in her room. The Myrtles is currently a Bed and Breakfast that gives regular tours to those curious enough to want to see the house- just not alone after dark.

Resurrection Mary

Traveling northeast on Archer Lane between the Willowbrook Ballroom and Resurrection Cemetery in Justice, Illinois, young men might find themselves tempted to pick up a young woman hitchhiking on the side of the road. She has light blond hair and blue eyes, is wearing a white party dress, and has been dead since the 1930’s. If you pick her up, she will stop you in front of Resurrection cemetery and vanish from the car. She is a classic example of the vanishing hitchhiker legend, a type of ghost story that has been around for at least a few hundred years. What makes this one so distinctive is the consistency of the story- the girl looks the same, wears the same dress, disappears in the same spot. Also worth noting stories of this particular hitchhiker popped up suddenly in the mid thirties and have been going strong ever since, and not just for those in the know. An account from 1973 sees a cab driver inquiring at Chet’s Melody Lounge across the street from the cemetery about a girl who fled his cab without paying her fare. Only his description of her sounded mighty familiar to the customers: Resurrection Mary had struck again!

The Flying Dutchman

It was 1641 when Captain Hendrik van der Decken swore he would round the Cape of Good Hope if it took him till doomsday. At his current rate, it probably will. The captain’s ship, known as The Flying Dutchman, has been seen frequently around the area, a phantom ship often so close the witnesses would swear it was on a crash course for their ship, only to see it vanish before them. It is always viewed as a bad omen to see the ship. Such a sighting was witnessed by the future King George V of England in 1881. He wrote: “At 4 a.m. the Flying Dutchman crossed our bows. A strange red light as of a phantom ship all aglow, in the midst of which light the masts, spars, and sails of a brig 200 yards distant stood out in strong relief as she came up on the port bow”. Later that morning, the sailor who originally spotted the vessel fell to his death.

Abraham Lincoln

Legend has it Lincoln saw his fate before he was assassinated. He reported a dream to his cabinet in which he wandered into a funeral at the white house, and when he inquired of one of the mourners who had died, the man responded “The President… he was killed by an assassin.”
Lincoln’s ghost has been spotted by many visitors and residents of the white house, among them First Lady Grace Coolidge, Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, and even Winston Churchill, who of course had something clever to say on the occasion. He claimed to be fresh from the bath, in the nude (what an image!) walking into the bedroom when he saw Lincoln standing near the fireplace. He quipped “Good evening, Mr. President. You seem to have me at a disadvantage.”, after which Lincoln smiled softly and disappeared.
The long history of spirit photography is littered with hoax and fakery, but perhaps there’s truth in at least one of these famous ghost photographs. What do you believe? ok wait for some time I will give some more information and then you can tell me……….

Pink Lady, the Ghost of Greencastle

This haunting photograph of a spectre in pink was taken at O’Hare Mansion in Greencastle, Indiana. After reports of paranormal activity in the mansion, Guy Winters and his friend Terry Lambert decided to investigate. They took multiple photographs of an upstairs window. This is what they saw when they developed the film. The mansion has since been demolished.

Grandpa’s Ghost

An ailing grandmother was moved to an assisted living home, but if this photograph is to be believed, she was not left alone. Her husband, allegedly the man standing behind her in the photo, decided to keep her company. He had died thirteen years before.

A Ghost in Manila

An ordinary photograph taken in Manila in the Philippines. I wouldn’t blame you for thinking this is just another photobomb, or a double-exposure. But neither of the girls in the photo reported anyone coming nearby when the picture was taken, nor any other presence, and the photo was shot with a digital camera, ruling out double-exposure. Who, then, is the translucent figure holding the girl’s arm?

The Woman on the Bench

This photograph was taken at Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery in Bremen Township, Cook County, Illinois in 1991 during a paranormal investigation by the Ghost Research Society. The small, abandoned cemetery is known to be haunted — perhaps one of the most haunted places in the Chicago area. A woman sits on a tombstone, staring out into the trees. She was not present when the photo was taken.

Boothill Cemetery Ghost

Terry Ike Clanton took this black-and-white photograph of a friend at Boothill Graveyard in Tombstone, Arizona. Dressed in old 1880s-style clothing, the two were trying to recreate the look of the Old West, as Clanton himself was a family member of the Clanton Gang, who fought at the gunfight at the OK Corral. When one of the photographs was developed, however, they found a mysterious figure lurking in the background, seemingly arising from a grave. No one else was around at the time the picture was taken. The Ghost of Freddy Jackson

In 1919, a group portrait of a World War I squadron was taken at the HMS Daedalus training facility. All seemed normal, save for one extra face in the crowd — the ghostly visage of Freddy Jackson, an air mechanic who had perished in an accident only two days before.

The Hampton Court Ghost

In 2003, this image was captured by closed-circuit security cameras at the Hampton Court Palace in London, England. The fire alarms had sounded, indicating that one of the doors had opened. Guards rushed to the area, but found the doors closed with no one nearby. Only the ghostly figure on the camera footage, nicknamed Skeletor, provided any clues. Perhaps one of Henry VIII’s beheaded wives returned?

The Watertown Ghost Faces

In 1927, James Courtney and Michael Meehan were killed by gas fumes while cleaning a cargo tank aboard the SS Watertown. A freak accident. Caught en route between the Panama Canal and New York City, they were buried at sea and the ship sailed on. But days later, crew members reported seeing unmistakeable faces on the water’s surface — the faces of James Courtney and Michael Meehan. The captain took several photographs, and the one you see above contains their ghostly faces.

The Girl in the Fire

November 19, 1905. A fire raged inside Wem Town Hall in Shropshire, England, engulfing the entire building and burning it to the ground. As it burned, one onlooker, Tony O’Rahilly, took several photographs from across the street. One contained something very shocking — a young girl standing in the doorway. No one at the scene recalled noticing the girl, nor did any of the firefighters.

The Brown Lady

Perhaps the most famous ghost picture ever taken is that of the Brown Lady of Raynham Hall. It was taken in 1936, and many claim it is in fact the ghost of Lady Townshend, who had been forcibly confined to the mansion by her husband until her reported death in 1726.As the story goes, Indre Shira and Captain Hubert C. Provand were photographing the house when Shira saw a strange, misty figure gliding slowly down the stairs. They snapped the photo. Provand didn’t think anything would turn up on the photograph, as he didn’t witness the form on the stairs, but as you can see in the image above, they certainly caught something.
Meanwhile talking about ghost it’s a quite vast and debaterial area. There are so many things and matters that remain unsolved and very mysterious

...Diasporic Cross-Currents in Michael Ondaatje’s Anil’s Ghost and Anita Rau Badami’s The Hero’s Walk HEIKE HÄRTING N HIS REVIEW of Anil’s Ghost, Todd Hoffmann describes Michael Ondaatje’s novel as a “mystery of identity” (449). Similarly, Aritha van Herk identifies “fear, unpredictability, secrecy, [and] loss” (44) as the central features of the novel and its female protagonist. Anil’s Ghost, van Herk argues, presents its readers with a “motiveless world” of terror in which “no identity is reliable, no theory waterproof” (45). Ondaatje’s novel tells the story of Anil Tessera, a Sri Lankan expatriate and forensic anthropologist working for a UN-affiliated human rights organization. Haunted by a strong sense of personal and cultural dislocation, Anil takes up an assignment in Sri Lanka, where she teams up with a local archeologist, Sarath Diyasena, to uncover evidence of the Sri Lankan government’s violations of human rights during the country’s period of acute civil war. Yet, by the end of the novel, Anil has lost the evidence that could have indicted the government and is forced to leave the country, carrying with her a feeling of guilt for her unwitting complicity in Sarath’s death. On one hand, Anil certainly embodies an ethical (albeit rather schematic) critique of the failure of global justice. On the other, her character stages diaspora, in Vijay Mishra terms, as the “normative” and “ exemplary … condition of late modernity” (“Diasporic” 441) — a condition usually......

An Ecological Reading of Hundred Secret Senses

...the publication of The Joy Luck Club (1989), The Kitchen God's Wife (1991), Amy Tan’s third novel The Hundred Secret Senses (1995) again enjoys a high popularity and evokes strong responses from both readers and critics. Despite the fact that The Hundred Secret Senses still exhibits Tan’s trademarks of “a strong sense of place, a many-layered narrative, family secrets, generational conflict, Chinese lore and history”, unlike the previous two that are generally praised, this novel gets mixed opinions. Most reviewers receive the characterization of Kwan as “the most original and best one” among Tan’s works (Huntley 113). Some other critics, Michiko Katukani et al, criticize Kwan’s over-imaginary, sensational and superstitious beliefs in ghosts, reincarnation and fantasies (qtd. in Chen 120). Frank Chin asserts that Tan has made both Kwan and Changmian appear inferior for the purpose of "perpetuating and...

The Interaction Between Imagery and Allusions in Translating Chinese Poetry- Based on Tu Fu’s Poems

...Chinese poetry has been translating for almost a hundred years, there are still many questions about the translation strategies and situations worth discussing. In this paper, the interaction between imagery and allusions when translating are discussed and the practical situation used when translating are presented. To discuss the interaction between imagery and allusions, the first thing is to identify and define each term. First is imagery. Imagery is thought to be the most important factor to the poetry. I use Ezra Pound’s word as definition because he is not only a pioneering translator in Chinese poetry and also a great poet. He says that “an image' is that which presents an intellectual and emotional complex in an instant of time.” Further explanation is given by Professor Liu in “The Art of Chinese Poetry” by putting imagery into two categories. The first is “simple imagery,” which is defined as “a verbal expression that evokes a mental picture, which not merely picture in words but also arouses emotional associations and enriches the poetic context”. The Shih ying Liaw2 second category is “compound imagery”, which involves “a juxtaposition or a1 comparison of two objects” and can be further put into four categories as juxtaposition, comparison, substitution and transference.1 The other term needed to be explained thoroughly is allusion. According to dictionary, an allusion is a direct or indirect reference to a person, place, event,......

...www.the-criterion.com The Criterion: An International Journal in English ISSN 0976-8165 Empire and Excess: Kipling and the Critique of Said’s Orientalism Sourit Bhattacharya Edward Said’s Orientalism remains one of the most influential books of the last quarter of twentieth century. In an informative manner, Said locates the seeds of Orientalism right in the medieval European imagination that solidifies itself in the nineteenth century. It is through knowledge, power, reason, scientific technologies and disciplinary set-up, philosophical supremacy and commercial benefit that the Europeans tried to redefine and restructure the East. The result was the emergence of a new form of ‘power’ based on information and control. Behind all the sacrificial and religious garb of the ‘white man’s burden’, Said notes, there runs hideous machinery that distorts the forms of knowledge, and remoulds the subject-object relationship in a Eurocentric mirror reflection. The orient becomes a textual study, a place, seen in mass, and considered to be transformed in such implacable homogeneity. Said writes: “In the system of knowledge about the Orient, the orient is less a place than a topos, a set of references, a congeries of characteristics, that seems to have its origin in a quotation, or a fragment of a text, or a citation from someone’s work on the Orient.”1 The Orient, like the ‘terra nullius’ notion of Australian imperialism, never exists, or exists in a manner which is vast,......

Unification of the Navy, Army and Air Force

...(RCAF) were combined into one service - the Canadian Forces. This process was accomplished by "integration" of the three services, and then Unification into a homogenous organization. I believe that Paul Hellyer helped shape the Canadian Forces into what it is today and also I do think that the integration and unification was a bad thing at the time as if it didn’t happen back in the 1968 it surely would have happen at a later date with General Rick Hillier. I will look into the process that Paul Hellyer took in bringing these three different services together under unification and explore some other opinions that I have found amongst way vast research upon the web. In 1964 the Minister of National Defense Paul Hellyer published the White Paper on Defense. In it he proposed the unification of the three services, the creation of a single command structure reporting to the Chief of Defense Staff and the restructuring of the current geographically based commands into six function-based commands. The process began with the introduction of Bill C-90 creating the CDS’ office and a single chain of command and culminated with Bill 243 the Canadian Forces Reorganization Act in February 1968, which unified the three services and created the Canadian Forces, as we know it today. During the 1990’s to the present the CF’s commitments have increased dramatically when compared to the previous decade. There have also been major fiscal cutbacks whose effect has been to degrade our......

Spiritual Growth

...such as discipleship, worship and fasting. Both my personal and spiritual health were good but have improved. At the beginning of the term my personal and ministry growth were limited to the perspective of the leaders I studied under. Since I have started this class my personal and ministry spiritual growth has been enriched. I have been enlightened in the areas of fasting, living a crucified life, discipleship, worship, and revival. Though fasting has been a key factor in my personal and ministry growth, I had never been introduced to the concept of keeping a fasting journal. I have participated in personal fast for healing as well as a ministry fast for God to increase membership. During both fasts I would mediate on God’s word and pray. This concept that Towns reveals in his book, Fasting for Spiritual Break Through, has been a tool that has contribute to my personal and ministry growth. As I began to follow the guidelines that Towns provided for a fasting journal I gained insights about my current tribulation that I am going through. I was able to take my eyes off of my circumstances and focus on the lessons that God is teaching me during this tribulation. Towns points out one of the benefits of a fasting journal, “It provides a means of recording important lessons God is daily teaching” (218). Before the start of the term I understood living a crucified life to be attending church on Sunday, fasting, and praying. To live a crucified life goes......

Corruption in Local Govt Administration

...Hewlett-Packard [Year] CORRUPTION AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATION IN NIGERIA: Introduction Nigeria is rich in natural and human resources, with a population of over 150 million people; the most populous country in Africa. At the time of her political Independence, on 1st October 1960, Nigeria excelled in production of agricultural produce such as groundnut, palm oil, cocoa, cotton, beans, timber and hides and skins. Then, during the oil boom period of the seventies Nigeria made headlines with her oil wealth, as a country richly endowed with oil and natural gas resources capable of financing a number of important projects to meet basic consumption and development needs (Salisu, 200:2). With per capital income of around $1,100 during the late 1970’s Nigeria was regarded as the fastest growing country in Sub-Sahara Africa (Salisu, Ibid). Yet it remains predominantly underdeveloped due to the scourge of corruption that has corroded it. Corruption denies the ordinary citizen the basic means of livelihood, it worsen unemployment and erodes our image as a nation and as individual (Danjuma Goje 2010:1). It has undermined Nigeria’s economic growth and development potential, with a per capital income of $340, Nigeria now ranks amongst the least developed countries in the World Bank League table (Salusi, op.cit). Nigeria’s higher education system once regarded as the best in Sub-Sahara Africa is in deep crisis. Health services are woefully inadequate, graduate......

Poetry

...Visual poetry is literary verse written on the page with intentional form to add meaning to the poem. The form may take on a recognizable shape, or may use a free formed pattern to create a new rhythm when reading the poem out loud. These shapes and rhythms are typically tied to the central ideas and themes contained within the poems, and often serve to reinforce those concepts. Visual poetry is poetry or art in which the visual arrangement of text, images and symbols is important in conveying the intended effect of the work. Confusingly, it is sometimes referred to as concrete poetry, a term that predates visual poetry. When I Was a Baby When I was a baby  I cried  spreading my voice  through the house,  beckoning for a response. When I cried  My blue pajamas  wiggled, squirmed  and turned  against the rails of the crib prison When I was a baby,  my small hands  grasped the air  as I inhaled,  gathering one more breath  to cry out  for a meal and a cuddle When my tones  reached through the air  to my parents  they would finally wake When I cried, they'd come to me  I'd stop crying,  look innocently  upward  and  smile as I was  lifted into caring arms  When I was a baby Visual poetry uses the page as a canvas to visually represent the themes, subjects, or sentiments of words in a variety of shapes and forms.

Nietzsche's Superman

...21, 2014 Nietzsche’s Superman In one of Friedrich Nietzsche’s most popular pieces of literature, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, he illustrates what would turn out to be one of his most notable philosophical ideals – that of the overman. The term “overman” refers to Nietzsche’s perception of a person who has prevailed over himself and human nature. Essentially, an overman is an individual who has surpassed the constraints of the human condition and achieved a point of freedom – limitless and allowing for creativity. This condition can be viewed as the status of a person in his entirety, an individual unfettered by the pressures and societal requirements of civilization and other people. Furthermore, the overman wills his own destiny, creates his own values, and dances with the game of life to the tune of his own spirit. In Thus Spoke Zarathustra¸ Nietzsche writes of three spiritual metamorphoses that must be undergone for the individual to reach the state of the overman. These transformations are somewhat narrow in nature, and thus can be seen as a type of guide to becoming the overman, or liberating one’s spirit. In this paper, I will interpret the three stages in the metamorphosis to becoming the overman, and provide an evaluation of how the concept of an overman can apply to us specifically. The first metamorphosis described by Zarathustra – Nietzsche’s mouthpiece – is that of the camel. He asks: What is difficult? asks the spirit that would bear much, and kneels down like a......

An Ethics of Reading

...An Ethics of Reading At the age of nine, Edith Wharton fell ill with typhoid. The local doctor told her parents nothing could be done and that their daughter would soon die. Only the ministrations of another physician, who happened to be passing through town and was prevailed upon to examine the girl, saved her life. Her fever fell, and the young Wharton began to recover. During her convalescence, she read voraciously. One of the books she was given contained a “super-natural” tale — a story which turned out to be, in Wharton’s own phrase, “perilous reading” (Wharton, p.275). In the original manuscript of her autobiography, Edith Wharton describes how reading this uncanny story occasioned a relapse, which brought her, once again, “on the point of death”: This one [book] brought on a serious relapse, and again my life was in danger and when I came to myself, it was to enter a world haunted by formless horrors. I had been a naturally fearless child; now I lived in a state of chronic fear. Fear of what? I cannot say — and even at the time, I was never able to formulate my terror. It was like some dark undefinable menace forever dogging my steps, lurking, threatening; (pp.275‑6).[1] According to Wharton, an act of reading plunged her body back into fatal illness. The young Edith Wharton did recover from the relapse, but its uncanny effects continued to haunt her well into adulthood. In “Women and Madness: the Critical Phallacy” (1975), Shoshana Felman tells another......
