4.  Work In Progress At OBRL

* Work continues on round-the-clock monitoring of the thermal anomaly in the orgone accumulator, or To-T.  Of special note is the observation of a definite increase in the To-T readings starting around mid-March, the time of the Spring Equinox, when the Earth moves into what appears to be a strong streaming or pulse of energy in space.

* Also with continued monitoring, anomalous readings from our orgone-charged GM/neutron counter, which soars episodically to several thousand CPM.  A control unit, of identical construction, but not orgone-charged, gives typical readings of 0-2 CPM.

* Our archive project continues, with transfers being made of OBRL's considerable archive of old VHS, U-Matic and Hi-8 videotapes onto digital DVDs, for long-term storage.  The VHS collection is nearly finished, but much remains to be done.  A section of the laboratory building, in the attic section under the observatory, has been set aside for this purpose.

* Opening of the Greensprings Observatory has been delayed this spring due to exceptional rains and snows, which continue into mid-April.

* Dr. DeMeo was recently invited to undertake drought-abatement operations in Southern France, which along with many other parts of southern Europe, had been suffering under significant dor-haze and drought conditions over several years.  The operations, which ran in mid-March, appeared to trigger a renewed episode of rains and snows over the region. A formal report will follow in the future.

5.  2nd Edition of Saharasia -- If you did not get the word...

For English-Speakers, if you haven't yet got the 2nd Edition of Saharasia, with numerous additions to the already-excellent 1st Edition, it can be obtained via here:
This webpage also provides downloadable PDFs of the 2nd Edition "Preface" and "Update on Saharasia" Appendix article, so you don't have to re-purchase the full book unless you desire.  It also provides summary articles about the Saharasia discovery in English, Spanish, German, Turkish and Greek.  We also seek volunteers who could make French, Polish, Italian and Arabic translations of this same summary article, for internet-posting.
