X-ray Vision Girl – Reap-Life Superpower

Natasha Demkina developed an interesting hobby at the age of 10. She discovered that she could scan her mother’s body and describe in detail the intimacy and condition of all her mother’s organs. The news spread rapidly and his neighbors from his hometown, Saransk, in western Russia, began to come to his home for body exams and diagnoses. The local children’s hospital decided to test their abilities and the girl was able to draw a diagram of a doctor’s stomach with a dark area at the exact location of his ulcer. She also challenged a patient’s cancer diagnosis; Subsequent tests confirmed the diagnosis of benign cyst by Demkina. In England, another doctor’s “X-ray” scan led Demkina to describe multiple injuries that one of the doctors had suffered in a serious car accident without any knowledge of the accident, and the doctor was fully dressed! Obviously, Natasha’s abilities have been questioned.

Natasha says she can see abnormalities down to the cell level and her mother says her readings are 100% accurate. So the test – which forced her to match at least five of the targeted health problems to the right topics – should have been simple as hell. She did not have to scan their entire bodies for unknown conditions. He was told exactly what to look for and where to look. Still, it took her more than four feet to complete the test and she only fulfilled four conditions correctly – a score that everyone had agreed before the test would not warrant additional testing.

The most dramatic mistake in Natasha’s diagnosis was her inability to see a large metal plate covering a missing part of the skull in a man with a large brain tumor removed. Instead, she said she “saw” a missing metal plate and skull section in a man whose appendix had been removed but whose skull was normal.

Thousands of people ask Netflix to cancel Amazon Prime Good Omens

More than 20,000 Christians have signed a petition for the cancellation of Good Omens, the television series adapted from the fantasy novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman of 1990, which unfortunately is directed to Netflix when the series is made by Amazon Prime.

The six-part series was released last month, starring David Tennant as the demon Crowley and Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale, who collaborate to prevent the arrival of the antichrist and an impending apocalypse. Pratchett’s last request to Gaiman before he died was that he adapt the novel they wrote together; Gaiman wrote the script and worked as a showrunner in the BBC / Amazon co-production, which Radio Times called “a devilishly funny love letter to the book.”

But Christians organized by the Return to Order campaign, a branch of the United States Foundation for a Christian civilization, do not agree. More than 20,000 supporters have signed a petition saying Good Omens is “another step to make satanism seem normal, light and acceptable,” and “mocks the wisdom of God.” God, they complain, it is “expressed by a woman” – Frances McDormand – the antichrist is a “normal child” and, most importantly, “this kind of video brings to light Truth, Error, Good and Evil , and it destroys the barriers of the horror that society still has for the devil. “They are calling Netflix to cancel the program.

Return to Order is based on the writings of author John Horvat II. “He calls on Americans to put the principles into practice by working towards what is called an organic Christian society.” Another request in April called on Walmart to “stop selling satanic products” after a protest in 2018 against a “blasphemous ice cream chain called Sweet Jesus.”

A Russian television channel is reportedly producing a series to challenge HBO’s Chernobyl

Moscow Times, writer Ilya Shepelin states director Aleksei Muradov is working with Russian network NTV on its own Chernobyl programme.

There is a theory that the Americans had infiltrated the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and many historians do not deny that on the day of the explosion an agent of the enemy’s intelligence services was present at the station.

Shepelin states the competing series will not present the same conclusions as Craig Mazin‘s drama: that a combination of reckless individual actions and the unchecked pride of the Soviet political system led to the explosion of a faulty nuclear reactor in the former Soviet Ukraine. Craig Mazin, the creator of the HBO series, famously obsessed over minor details such as shoelaces and telephones, and adopted first-hand accounts of survivors to authentically recreate the Soviet Union of the 1980s.

NTV’s Chernobyl, filmed in Belarus, takes far more liberties. A description of the show says that the plot revolves around a CIA agent dispatched to Pripyat to gather intelligence on the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and the Russian counterintelligence agent sent to track him down. If it sounds like fiction, that’s because it is. But the director, Alexey Muradov, said the show “will tell viewers about what really happened back then”.

Sky Original’s Chernobyl was dismissed as a “caricature” in Russia by pro-Kremlin media who said “only we have the right to talk about our history”, according to the Moscow Times. There’s no air date for the series but it’ll be broadcast on state-funded station NTV, known for its pro-Kremlin programming. It received 30 million ($460,000) in funding from the culture ministry, the outlet said.
