Mark Loescher: part orangutan?   (Collier County Sheriff's Office)

(Newser) – A Florida man suspected of assault told sheriff's deputies he was half-orangutan and had to telephone the "Fusion Center" about his monkey blood, the Naples Daily News reports. He also claimed to be Elvis Presley's brother, a friend of President Bush, and director of the CIA. The deputies confronted Mark Loescher, 51, in Naples last week after a woman said he had threatened her with a gun. All she'd done was mention that his car—which he sat in outside a bank—was smoking. The deputies recovered his gun and booked him for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Jun 1, 2014 2:02 PM CDT The Subud is a word wide organization with a vague background. During the previous decades it become a serious network, which has an effective on every aspect of life, including banks, organizations for youth and culture, enterprises, foundations and a huge empire of property wealth.
May 10, 2014 6:31 PM CDT The official founder was R.M. Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjujo (1901-1987), known after the World War II. as Pak Subuh from Indonesia. At the beginning the sect existed only in Java, but in the 50’s – 60’s it extended word wide, taking out influential people to be their supporter directly or by implication. However the real intellectual leading and ideology bases came from a totally different direction. Doctrines, worded by the well- known Russian dancer Gurdjieff, has been translated to the sect in the 40’s – 50’s by John G. Bennett, who was the disciple of Gurdjieff with a very interesting intelligence past and can be correlate with more organizations. Since the tsarist period ends Gurdjieff itself has been getting in a vague touch with Russians. Subud established a consistent network of enterprises around the word and in that countries, which are important for them. That includes foundations, banks, huge agricultural territories, mines, powerhouses and a wide range of processing trades. The one of the oldest organization has been built in Borneo, Indonesia, influencing the whole local region financial life. Subud could create an empire, consist of free labor forces and industries network, by a microcredit system for the pour and backward Dajak folk lived in the island. Dajak families meant a cheap and governable labor, because their children can work with them in the Subud’s mines and plantation. One plantation of oil palm tree needs 8 years to become productive, therefore it is important to hold the costs low. On that score Subud employs a mass of children.
