State Route 520 (SR 520) is a 13-mile (21 km) state highway and freeway in the Seattle metropolitan area
Seattle metropolitan area
in the U.S. state of Washington. Connecting Seattle
Seattle
to the Eastside region of King County across the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge on Lake Washington, it intersects Interstate 5 (I-5) in Seattle, I-405 in Bellevue, and SR 202 in Redmond. It was designated as a freeway in 1964, but was not fully constructed until the late 1970s. Increased traffic on the corridor, spurred in part by expansion of the Microsoft headquarters in Overlake, led to the addition of high-occupancy vehicle lanes and new interchanges in the 1990s. In April 2016, the original floating bridge was replaced by a wider one as part of a multibillion-dollar expansion program that is scheduled to be completed in the 2020s

Psychic
A psychic is a person who claims to use extrasensory perception (ESP) to identify information hidden from the normal senses, particularly involving telepathy or clairvoyance, or who performs acts that are apparently inexplicable by natural laws. Many people believe in psychic abilities, but there is no scientific consensus as to the actual existence of such powers. The word "psychic" is also used as an adjective to describe such abilities. In this meaning, this word has some synonyms, as parapsychic or metapsychic. Psychics encompass people in a variety of roles. Some are theatrical performers, such as stage magicians, who use various techniques, e.g., prestidigitation, cold reading, and hot reading, to produce the appearance of such abilities for entertainment purposes

Shapira Scroll
The Shapira Scroll
Shapira Scroll
(also known as the Shapira Strips) was a manuscript carrying Biblical verses written in Paleo-Hebrew script. It was presented by Moses Shapira
Moses Shapira
in 1883 as an ancient Biblical artifact, and was the focus of a major archaeological controversy. The scroll consisted of fifteen leather strips, and Shapira claimed to have found it in Wadi Mujib
Wadi Mujib
near the Dead Sea. The Hebrew text hinted at a different version of Deuteronomy, including an eleventh commandment: "Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thy heart: I am God, thy God". The authenticity of the scroll was quickly questioned by scholars, and the shame brought about by the accusation of forgery drove Shapira to suicide in 1884. The scroll disappeared and then reappeared a couple of years later in a Sotheby's

auction, where it was sold for £25
