Get ready for the goosebumps: ‘Long Island Medium’ Theresa Caputo hopes to help and heal in Atlantic City with two shows at Trop on Oct. 13.

Two movies about paranormal activity share little in common. Paranormal Activity is a movie that was made in the ultra cheap hand-held style of The Blair Witch Project and has been doing nearly as well as that horror phenomenon from a decade ago. Steven Spielberg has been a champion of the little horror film that could.
In certain Cape May circles, Craig McManus is quickly becoming a star -- especially if you like hanging with the dead. And we're not talking about Bob Weir and the boys. We mean the actual dead, as i...
Recession? What recession? With on-line ticket brokers charging as much as $900 a seat, the hottest ticket in town this weekend isn't for Lewis Black's angry and politically-charged comedy rants, Jo...
Call it the ultimate celebrity gossip. In her 2003 book, Visits from the Afterlife, psychic Sylvia Browne actually revealed which stars went to heaven, and which did not. Comedian John Candy "made ...
I used to be a phone psychic. That's right, I was one of those people on the other end of the line when you called Dionne Warwick's psychic friends or Miss Cleo's band of clairvoyants. No, I had no special or supernatural powers, nor did I believe that I did (even though I told my boss otherwise). I was just some guy sitting in my apartment, answering the phone, using the alias Mannix, and telling poor desperate souls on the other end of the line that one day they'd own a carpet store, or that they might be married 21 times. Fantastically, everyone seemed to take me at face value. That was five years ago and just a fun way to make a little cash on the side. Naturally, however, I'm drawn to see how some other people have perfected this craft. Since the Atlantic City Boardwalk seems to have funnel cake in every pot and a physic reader on every corner, I decided to try my luck with the roulette wheel of self-professed prophets and mediums. Fortune telling is not a new art form. History traces it back to ancient Egypt, but the craft must have undoubtedly stretched even further back...
� I am not a disbeliever in ESP (extrasensory perception). I put that opening sentence in the double negative because I'm not very gullible either. I have read about people who can move objects with their minds (psychokinesis or telekinesis), but usually it's little objects such as match sticks and the like, and it takes an awful lot of effort on the part of the telekine. Most reputable scientists who research this area are not convinced that on a grand scale such an ability is feasible. Teams of psychokineticists will not be the next step in rocketry ("Come on, Charlie, think! think! damnit! We have to send that rocket into space!"). As for mind-to-mind communication (telepathy), there is some evidence that this might exist as well. Some experiments were done at Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn in the 1970s purporting to show that telepathy works best when the recipient is sleeping. He incorporates the telepathic message into his dreams. If the sender is thinking of an axe, the sleeper dreams that he is hacking away at his mother-in-law. Certainly, premonition or prophecy is a long established part of human culture. Recall how Pontius Pilate's wife told him that she had had a dream...
