Proj Aug Headlines

Notes for Project August headlines:

The probability column in the following table means nothing for predictability…this is a number strictly for our research.

The # of Hits is exactly that. If a real-world headline comes out that registers a DreamSeer score, that is technically a “hit,” however, we typically don’t enter scores if they are less than about 2.5 to 3.0.

A note about dates: We are heavily tracking all the dates you can imagine in order to get really great data on WHEN certain things happen. For our purposes in the last column (Highest DreamSeer Hit), we eliminated DATE as a variable, and only looked at accuracy of the event. For example, the Spanish King stepped down 2 months prior to August, but the fact that this was outside August does not reduce the DreamSeer score (this applies only to Proj Aug at this point).

We did this because a high number of predicitons were coming true throughout the summer. There are many benefits to separating DreamSeer scores from the timing, and that will all come out in the post-August report.

Therefore, when you see any DreamSeer score in Project August, know that it no longer takes into account the date error (as long as the event took place sometime after the dream, linguistics, or projected headline).


Update September 03, 2014: Headlines currently hold an 89% hit rate with an average score of 3.9. Four headlines have been retired for a specific reason that is hopefully well-explained at the bottom of this page.

Headline Pruning

As I gain more experience with what is possible in dream prophecy, I just simply stutter when looking back on some of my predictions. Just looking at them now makes me squirm in displeasure.

I decided to do just a little bit of pruning on the ones I consider “senseless” and “unfair to both parties.” Here were the rules I gave myself….I was not allowed to close out headlines that had no hits or that I simply thought would never get a hit. The second rule was to eliminate those headlines that hurt both communities: 1) the dreamers / predictors and 2) the skeptics / onlookers.

For example, we had a headline called “The Otherlies.” I can show an emphatic 5.0 score for this headline, but it just feels wrong because there’s no real substance here. In essence, there’s no pure score that can satisfy either camp. Plus, I can simply say “The Otherlies” on any given week and get a plethora of supportive news to develop a high score. Therefore, Headline #48 is gone.

Headline #9 is also now deleted. “Something in the Southern Hemisphere” just gives me the willies. Both camps here have to acknowledge that something happens everyday in the Southern Hemisphere, and I have enough material to give us a 5.0, but it just doesn’t feel right claiming it. Therefore, that headline is gone.

Headline #64 is scratched off because it said, “Something BIG is birthed.” Well, first of all, what is considered BIG and what is considered birthed? Absolutely ridiculous and unhelpful. Incidentally, I have a few hits here that can give this headline a technical 5.0, but again, I feel like a used car salesman if I attempt to take credit for it. Therefore this one is gone also.

Does the Pruning Affect the Stats?

The pruning actually hurts our stats. It doesn’t affect the hit rate by a noticeable level (+/- 0.1%), but our average hit score actually goes down because of this move. I’m doing the pruning out of principle, and I actually see several more I would like to delete, but I decided to limit this move to just the bare minimum.

  1. #26 This was popular headline “Scientists Discover That Smelling Farts Might Prevent Cancer” matches fart and it is a scholarly PAPER, published in journal “Medicinal Chemistry Communications” Article: http://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlelanding/2014/md/c3md00323j#!divAbstract HEADLINE: https://sfglobe.com/?id=1660&src=home_feed

    • Absolutely hilarious that first headline! For the flooding headlines, does this mean that the drought is officially over?

  2. Seen in a dream-the Gates of Hell are beneath the nation of Iraq and they open on the 20th of this month. Muslims kill everyone and everything in sight-cut off the heads of dogs and babies-act like they are being driven mad by something. When crosses are pulled down the demons take over! Islam is based on Allah who is a DEMON! Now the Iraquis will get their demonic government,etc. It will be hell on earth and have to be stopped with nuclear weapons!

  3. #104 Update August 11, 2014: U.S. suspects Israelis stole 1960s missing uranium from nuclear facility. From my dream, NDC determined this was an anthrax powder. I knew all along that the powder had something to do with nuclear bombs re: powder cake in a nuclear facility. Why didn’t I speak up?? This dream leads into PA July 13/14, 2014 – Exchange of (Powder) Goods in a Desert

  4. #77 Soik says on his Facebook page that the app will be out in the fall with iOs 8 and iPhone 6.

    • Yep, good call, but this also rings of the bundyfest meme. This time it’s not BLM but border guards that don’t like the militias doing their job! :)

  5. You do realize that the person who said there will be violence in a US city is right? St Louis/Ferguson is under siege over the shooting of a black man by a white police officer. They have looted and ran wild for days there and the media has been blacked out and they have declared a no-fly zone over that area due to people shooting at helicopters.

  6. #6 Entertainer (insert any name that has “Van” in it) to Feed One Million Hungry Americans the Second Week of August (or an infinite amount of variations of this).

    In alignment with Tony Robbins’ philosophy that, “the secret to living is giving,” Robbins Research International has partnered with Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization. The Feeding America network distributes food to over 37 million Americans each year, including 14 million children and 3 million seniors. For every UPW ticket sold, RRI will be donating the equivalent of 90 meals to benefit local families in Dallas and the surrounding areas. With expected attendance in excess of 4,000 for this event, they aim to donate more than 400,000 meals to the Feeding America network of food banks.

    Robbins was born Anthony J. Mahavorick. His surname was originally spelled ‘Mohorovic’ and is of Croatian origin.
