“From the dawn of our species, Man has been blessed with curiosity. Our most precious gift, without exception, is the desire to know more - to look beyond what is accepted as the truth and to imagine what is possible.”

- Alvar Hanso, Address to the U.N. Security Council, 1967

Could this be the face of Persephone?

There's something rotten in Denmark, and she goes by the name of Rachel Blake.

Just as action is being taken against Persephone, up pops another nuisance to the Hanso Foundation. Rachel Blake has been releasing videos on her poorly hidden blog from Copenhagen where it seems she's on a personal mission to get herself arrested.

So far we have her professing to trespassing into a Hanso corporate building and a few photographs taken while stalking Hugh McIntyre on a business lunch.

I think someone needs a boyfriend.

"The Hanso Foundation site has been hacked by malicious infiltrators seeking to blemish the good work of many dedicated researchers. Until a legal investigation is completed, the site will no longer be accessible to the public. Namaste."

The Hanso Foundation IT department is on the case and legal action is being taken. TheHansoFoundation.Org has been taken down while evidence is being collected. We can only hope they're closer to catching the nefarious "Persephone".

If you have any information regarding Persephone please contact:

The Hanso Foundation 1-877-HansORG

Hanso Communications Director Hugh McIntyre made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to address public concern that has arisen due in large part to ABC's libelous portayal of the foundation.

He touched on many issues such as Alvar Hanso, The Dharma Initiative, ABC's LOST, Joop the Orangutan, and the hacker Persephone.

Hopefully by clearing the air The Hanso Foundation can now return to it's extraordinary philanthropic work.

Here come the internet attack dogs.

Now an obscure "DJ" named Dan is making blatant accusations against The Hanso Foundation and more importantly Alvar Hanso.

So far, I have been unable to find any record of DJ Dan being an actual radio DJ, so for the meantime we'll have to assume he is just another lunatic conspiracy theorist with a podcast spreading lies. I've checked out his website and his "evidence" is at best weak.

His theory is that Alvar Hanso is cryogenically frozen, and that is the reason Hanso hasn't been making public appearances since 2002.

Have you ever thought maybe Alvar Hanso is too busy saving humanity to attend conventions so he can be seen publicly?

Maybe it's time to put back on the tinfoil hat, Dan.

Use the following backgrounds and avatars to show your support for The Hanso Foundation.

Let your family and friends know you won't stand for sullying of the great Alvar Hanso. Put it on your work computer and show your coworkers you haven't fallen for the latest smear campaign.

Recently someone going by the handle Persephone has been causing trouble over at The Hanso Foundation. So far she has managed to hack the Hanso website and their Verizon voicemail system. My sources tell me that The Hanso IT department is on the case, but Persephone is very skilled and has installed malicious code that may take a while to work through.

I urge anyone with any information as to Persephone's true identity to contact The Hanso Foundation at 1-877-HansOrg.

Hopefully with our combined effort we can bring this hacker to justice.

Author Gary Troup has been spreading lies and innuendo regarding the great work being conducted by Alvar Hanso and The Hanso Foundation. I urge all Hanso supporters to boycott "Bad Twin" and all of Gary Troup's other books.

It may be too late to show Mr. Troup the error of his ways, but with a stident voice we can show Hyperion and other publishers that we will not stand for further besmirching of the great Hanso name in the future.

Hanso Industries Press Release:

"For over thirty years, The Hanso Foundation has stood for compassion and innovation, but today our reputation has been attacked in the novel "Bad Twein," written by Gary Troup and published by Hyperion books.

Throughout the pages of "Bad Twin," readers have found numerous passages featuring misinformation about The Hanso Foundation and its partners. The Hanso Foundation strongly objects to the book "Bad Twin," and encourages readers to make up their own minds.
