Paradigm Clock Reset

PRG issued a press release on November 13 announcing the
Paradigm Clock had been reset to 11:58:30 pm - 30 seconds closer
to midnight. The explanations and events behind this move are
available in the release at:


The UFO Abduction Phenomenon: A Symposium

[Note: this symposium will be netcast live on Tuesday, November
19, at 7:30 pm EST at: www.scifi.com/ufo]

SCI FI Channel brings together the world's most highly regarded
abduction investigators/authors for the first time to explore
facts and theories of this controversial phenomenon. This is
prelude to the December airing of "Steven Spielberg Presents
Taken," a ten-part miniseries. Morton Dean will moderate the
panel composed of Dr. John Mack, Budd Hopkins and Dr. David

Morton Dean is a highly regarded, award-winning news
correspondent. He is currently the voice of History Channel and
A&E Biography documentaries, host/reporter of a monthly 60-
minute cable network science show, and heard on National Public
Radio commenting on politics and terrorism. As a correspondent
he covered many historic, stories around the world for CBS News
(20 years) and ABC News (14 years). He anchored regular
newscasts for both networks. Dean also anchored hundreds of
network news specials, documentaries and breaking news stories
for both networks.

John Mack, M.D., is a Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical
School and founder of the Department of Psychiatry at Cambridge
Hospital. His research into the spiritual and transformational
aspects of the alien encounter phenomenon was first presented in
his 1994 book Abduction and expanded upon in the 1999 book
Passport to the Cosmos. His other writings include the 1977
Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of T.E. Lawrence, A Prince of
Our Disorder.

Budd Hopkins pioneered the first systematic research into
accounts of human abductions. He is the author of Missing Time,
Intruders - The Incredible Visitation at Copley Woods, the basis
for a 1992 CBS miniseries, and Witnessed - The True Story of the
Brooklyn Bridge UFO Abductions.

David M. Jacobs, Ph.D., Associate Professor of History at Temple
University, is one of the world's most respected UFO abduction
researchers. Jacobs' books include The UFO Controversy in
America, Secret Life: Firsthand Accounts of UFO Abductions, and
The Threat.

D2003 Report

A report on the Disclosure2003 campaign will be out shortly.

History/Learning/Discovery Channels

It has been noted that all three of these cable channels, have
cut way back on airing of archived and new UFO/ET documentaries.
 Also, PRG has been informed by a reliable source that the
Discovery Channel is no longer accepting documentaries which are
"pro UFO."

PRG considers this most interesting, but predicts that with the
election over and the SCI FI Channel making major moves, all
three channels will reverse course soon.

Continuing the Activism

With the D2003 Campaign over for now, the focus turns to keeping
the activism moving forward. In that regard PRG director,
Stephen Bassett, will continue speaking to the key issues in
venues across the country.

Efforts to raise money for X-PPAC and the D2003 campaign fund,
which remains open, will go forward.

Also, PRG is seeking the one-year donation of the use of an
unfurnished house in the Washington metro area (preferably in
the District itself), with an option to rent a second year.

Some of the D2003 staff have expressed a willingness to live and
work out of a central location in the fashion of Nader's Raiders
in the 1970's.

X-PPAC Congressional Alert

X-PPAC issued a Congressional Alert on November 6 highlighting
the developing SCI FI initiatives - symposiums, Coalition for
Freedom of Information, retaining of the PR firm,
PodestaMattoon, etc. It can be seen at:


Data Quality Act

PRG is reviewing the work of Francis Knize who is in the process
of challenging NASA using the Data Quality Act, which just
became active on October 1, 2002. The DQA sets standards for
the quality of scientific and statistical information put out by
federal agencies.

As most of you know, the UFO/ET question is the most utilized
target for the submission of FOIA requests. Now there is
another tool to keep the pressure on.

'Close Encounter'/'Contact' Watch

As stated in earlier Updates, PRG believes one indication of a
pending disclosure event will be a substantial increase in the
airings of 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' and 'Contact'.
