There was an update today at the Verizon Forum on the Retrievers of Truth website and also a new video posted on the Rachel Blake website. It seems the two are interconnected as clicking on Rachel's video redirects you to the ROT website. Rachel's message says: "FIND my next video and let me know if you can make heads or tails of any of this!"
A new thread called "The ticking clock 06/20/06" was added today at the ROT. It looks like they may be hosting a conversation (or some event) with Rachel in the next 48 hours (movie with Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy). At any rate, it looks like we may have to search a bit to find the video. Update:
The Broadband Stories page now contains Rachel's newest video under the "Ultimate Journey" 2nd row 3rd from the left. http://www.broadbandstories.com/ seems like she's hiding her video's in plain sight. Also, there is a loss between audio and video right after she offers the viewers pizza and the guys at the Verizon Forum even acknowledge the editing. Of any significance?
Then we find out that Rachel is actively following Mittlewerk around, memorizing his habits and truly being "cloak and dagger"(where have we heard that before). Even looks like she's trying to get into the "Allied Copenhagen Marine Merchants" shipping company. Mittlewerk is spending a bit of time in the archives of this business. Perhaps, we should be looking for it too...
Then the Allied Copenhagen Marine Merchants Shipping Company was once the East Ocean Trade Group. And Rachel has thrown us a clue. What was Mittlewerk looking for and what does the last reference mean?

PROPERTY OF THE HANSO GROUP
"With Magnus Hanso's sale of the New World Sea Traders, an era in British shipping drew to a close. Whether history will judge him harshly for his continued role in the slave trade post-abolition remains to be seen. However, with Hanso's unquestionable dedication to his fleet, it is certain that this ship's captain turned entrepreneur left a substantial mark on the international shipping trade. For, although he could have rested on his laurels and steered the company from the quiet and comfort of his London manor, Hanso's passion for the sea inspired him to continue as captain of several voyages each year.
It is an interesting footnote, and perhaps, a testament to Hanso's lasting influence that those ships from which the New World Sea Traders operated at Portsmouth, numbering 18 through 27, continued to be known during the following era of the East Ocean Trade Group as the "New World Docks", a point..."
"The Black Rock
This British(?) slave-trading vessel disappeared in 1881, on a return voyage from a gold mining operation in the South Indian Ocean. Perhaps more interesting than the fact the ship was lost were the circumstances preceding and following its disappearance. According to traders on Papua New Guinea, the ship sailed away from port in an Easterly direction, rather than West to Africa, where it would exchange gold from the mines in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea for more slaves. Furthermore, though a copy of the ship's manifest has been discovered - no accurate information is available on the ship's ownership. According to the manifest, The Black Rock initially sailed from (and was supposed to return to) slip 23 in Portsmouth, Britain -- but no shipping company claimed ownership. A crew of some 40 men, along with an uncounted number of slaves, was presumably lost at sea."
Note: Allied Copenhagen Marine Merchants = East Ocean Trade Group = New World Sea Traders - How many faces can one company have? And "New World Docks" strikes me for some reason. Google searches for Allied Copenhagen Marine Merchants, New World Sea Traders, East Ocean Trading Group, New World Docks and even the Hanso Group all fail to turn up anything of any significance.
